A phrase used as an excuse to not say anything. Typically used to politely not talk to "friends" you actually don't want to be friends with.
Person 1: Why don't you ever talk to me anymore? Do you not want to be my friend?
Person 2: Sorry, I've been at a loss of words lately.

The loss of words is not always a bad thing. Sometimes the things we care most about we cant form the corrrct words. Things such as “I am sorry, please forgive me” dont seem enough. Then we try to say more and makes things worse. Maybe be try to pray to God and cant find the words. So silence sometimes speaks the reality that one understands thier failure.
Loss of words are ok but only after we have spoken from a genuine and transparent heart.
