Emptiness of poet, nothing going right (4)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'emptiness' is the definition.
(I know that emptiness can be written as void)

'poet nothing going right' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'nothing' could be 'o' (O resembles 0) and 'o' is present in the answer.
The remaining letters 'vid' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'of' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for void that I've seen before include "Null and invalid" , "Containing nothing or not legally binding" , "Empty space or vacuum" , "Empty or vacant, like space" , "Null and empty" .)
