Wordless

I am penless and
inkless
so the parched parchment becomes
a crumpled mass on the floor
no words emit from me
I am as empty
as a Saharan desert flower
bloomless without rain

The words are gone
life has left a
world seen and frozen
in my mind
because I am penless
inkless and
wordless
a crumpled mass on the floor
forever more
because from me
the words are gone
and without them
I am dead
