Nothing To Say

What do I say when I have nothing to say? 
Do I say this or do I say that or do I say nay or do I Say naught?
Do I speak real loud or real low? 
Do I speak fluently or keep the flow? 
Do I yell or do I scream? 
Should I stand and daydream? 
What is your opinion? 
What is mine? 
Am I getting out of line? 
Do I call or should I text? 
Is this conversation too perplexed? 
What is up and what is down? 
Am I even making a sound? 
What is in the words I say? 
Is the time night or day? 
Do you know which way to go? 
Am I talking way too slow? 
What is the meaning of a word? 
Am I sounding too absurd? 
Have you even heard my call? 
Do you even care at all? 
Do you wish to Be my friend? 
Will this discussion ever end? 
I could go on and on. 
Perhaps I’ll just write a song. 
If I do will you sing along? 
I should go for now I guess, 
I must go and clean my desk.
