distant voice speaks words to me
i fail to comprehend
i mull, i strain, i contemplate
and still,
→→they mean nothing

so loud and unrelenting
from open mouth they pour
i hurt, i ache, i hesitate
and still,
→→they mean nothing

desperate words flow away
like driftwood on the tide
i calm, i sigh, i pacify
be still,
→→they are nothing
