Nothing comes out

I sit down and my mind is blank. I think nothing.

I look inside myself and see nothing. I feel nothing. I think nothing.

I want to display and show some emotion on my expressionless face but there is nothing. I feel nothing. I think nothing.

I want to speak but my lips don't move and no words come out. I say nothing. I feel nothing. I think nothing.

I want to write but my hand doesn't move and nothing is written. I write nothing. I say nothing. I feel nothing. I think nothing.

I stare at the blank piece of white paper with my pen poised above it. Nothing comes out.

I want to understand this nothingness.

I want to make something out of this nothingness.

Nothing comes out.

It doesn't make sense that there is nothing.

Nothing after all that? Nothing comes out?

Wait. Just wait.

Finally, there is indeed nothing.
