You need to send the "End of File" character manually.

But note that when invoking solely "gpg" it expects data to
decrypt/verify and there is not much point in typing that manually (but
you could use the clipboard to copy&paste an encrypted message there).

You could, however, start with "gpg -e" to encrypt a message manually.
