Escaping Emptiness

Words elude me.
They fly away
Like a flock of birds
Soaring over my head,
Just out of the reach
Of my grasping fingertips.
I long to write –
To share everything
That’s going on
Inside my heart and mind –
But each time I try
I come up empty.
And what do you do
With something that is empty?
You fill it! So I am going to fill
This void that I am feeling
With emptiness itself,
And pray that my words
Will return again soon.
