NUMB


NUMB

I feel numb.
pain so intense,
I’m at a loss for words.

It creeps up slowly
with the warm reassurance
Of familiar company.

It caresses
With the cold cynicism
Of a rapist.

It Jabs and bites
Grips firm, tears.
Then holds like a vice. 

It lingers...
Not the snapping of
Fingers nor clenching of
Fists will overthrow
this fit.

Eyes shut tight
tears imploring
jaws clenched hard
head throbbing
snapping heat strings...

I
Resign.
No
Pain didn’t win,
I chose to feel
Numb
