I feel numb.

Not physically numb;

I can still wiggle my fingers and toes
I can still move my head and scrunch my nose
I can poke out my tounge and blink my eyes
I can walk with my legs and tense my thighs

This kind of numb can’t been seen
Only felt inside but it makes me want to scream

or not

It makes me care about nothing at all
It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small
World disasters, a death or spilt tea
When I’m like this, nothing affects me

I can only associate ‘passion’ with the fruit
No longer am I driven, my mind is in dispute

I just don’t care
I can’t feel
Nothing is there
When will this heal?

I want to feel, to laugh, to cry
I don’t want to be an empty shell, waiting to die

All I want is for my feelings to come back
I need an injection of colour to get rid of this black

  1. I don’t know if this is a reflection of your current self but if it is, I hope it passes. Write and vent out everything you feel. Soon you will feel lighter and you will already be halfway to better 🙂 Your poem’s amazing, I especially liked the last line 🙂
