Vocabulary

In the habit
Of little
Things
Which
Make sense
Within
Senselessness

Meaninglessness
Is a nemesis
You know that
Yet I write like this

I hope you get something
From these words
Nonetheless

Needing to
Weave things
Up in symbols
Because words
Strive always
To get
To meanings

Though they do
Their best
We’re
Cycling
Changing

Of expression
I wish I could
Tell you
How much
It hurts to
Feel
Worthless

But you
Know as
Well as
I do
That that
Is one of
The hardest
Things to
Put lexicon
To

Thank you
Words
For helping
Us at all
To get to
Things
Which
Evade
