The Blank Page

I hold my pencil above the paper longing to draw, yet the page remains white, image-less. I search for inspiration, still nothing comes. I need to let my feelings out in a creation of pencil strokes, but how can I when I don't know what I'm feeling. I'm not depressed, nor am I happy. I can't write my feelings, words for them have abandoned me long ago. My new outlet was drawing and even now its failing me. The page taunts me with it's nothingness, or maybe that's my feelings, nothing. Can you feel nothing? Would you be able to look at this paper before me and know that's what I feel? Nothing... How can I draw nothing?...
