VS code for silent note

I'm notating a piece with multiple verses. Some have multiple additional notes to accommodate additional syllables in different verses. Is there a [] symbol I can add to the lyrics or a setting I can  
change to prevent VS from singing (making a sound) for an individual note without text ? ie making La-La silent in the absence of text.
 
Thanks in anticipation of an easy answer I have overlooked !

Usually, we type a space whenever there is no new syllable. HA will show it  with a melisma (sort of underscore line) and VS will sing accordingly.
For example, when I have two 1/8th on the staff, matching with 2 syllables in verse one, but only 1 syllable in verse 2, I put a slur between the two notes (with a dotted line, to indicate it may be optional, according to the lyrics) Usually, VS will sing  two 1/8th notes on two syllables in verse 1, and one 1/4 note on one syllable in verse 2.
I attach a small example to this post.

Try this as the text under the silent note:  [#]
 
Bubu's suggestion is best for notes in the middle of the melody, where one would normally lengthen the syllable, but occasionally there will be an extra note at the beginning of a line or verse, where one would not want the previous syllable to carry over, and this seems to work.

Thanks for the replies BuBu and PaulL.  
I clearly didn't explain as well as I thought but Paul saw what I meant.  
 
I'll try the [#] approach. I had already tried [] but that didn't work.
 
The problem was sheet music which repeats for multiple verses with lyrics in each verse which contain different numbers of words/syllables. I notated it in serial fashion in the end so that each verse was unique ! This approach is not ideal for page count but works fine for audio purposes. Copy & Paste was a pain, the piece contained multiple time signature changes and these C&P operations don't always behave as expected.
