Otiose: Master, am I futile?

To otiose I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like pointless
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using bootless

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

May I pass a meter, disclosed so people might see
Fully cheerful innuendos, visibly nurturing, and oh but divulged free?
Futile or barren look all too apparent. But is haggard?
Pointless, idler? - or indolent, slothful? Oops! I deserted laggard!
I reckon fruitless and therefore shiftless, but happily ought I
- throw concepts so - innuendos written with equations spry?

There was a young boy from Saint Vrain,
And he needed a word for vain.
