Desperate. This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

There is desperation in the life I lead, anticipation for something more, a quietness that roars too loud to plug my ears, a hopeful song but I can't remember the words. Emptiness a defective pen would have if it was manufactured without any ink.

Thanks! It's not longer because I was modeling poetry but perhaps I'll work on it!
