A New Sweet Nothing

Here,
I am lacking
any kind of
lead
for my writing.
I don't know
what I am doing
or how.
I don't really
even know how to spell.

-----

I feel like humming
instead of writing
today.
A flowing
nothing
of rhythms,
all tones
that make no sense.
I tried to put my
pen to paper
to describe it.
And came up with nothing,
except the
word swirling
thousands of times over.
Swirling,
Swirling,
Swirling.
Today feels like a
light nothing.
I feel untouched
by any emotion.
Mindless humming.
Does anyone miss it yet?
