Too numb to grieve


How does One describe the "feeling"

of being numb?
T'is an emotion
yet One feels none.

One feel not anger
nor love.
Not hurt
nor comfort.

One does not feel
the tears that stream
down emotion worn cheeks,
nor does One feel the passing
of time through endless weeks.

One cannot feel
the sunshine on
tender skin,
nor the biting of cold wind.

Frost does not prick
at One's heart
and One cannot tell the warmth
of love apart.

So how does One
"feel" numb?
And when One feels
nothing at all,
what has One become?


Oh so softly
Does my head ever spin,
With all these thoughts kept within.

The feeling that I find
The hardest to bare
Is this feeling of nothing
Just of body, flesh and hair.

I have no emotions,
No feelings,
No cares
I am just a body existing
A black hole if you will,
Where everything reflects off
I cannot even feel a single thrill.

Oh so silently
Does my mind become,
A complete nothing,
For it is perfectly numb.

Grief . Sorrow leaden heart . Soulful pain that seems to never end .Days that go on and on .Nights with out end . Know this ... one day it will lessen and fade to a dull memory . I promise .
