I am numb

Don't ask me how I think, don't ask me how I feel, don't ask for explanations I am numb. Don't raise insightful queries or try to coax replies, it's not that I don't hear you; I am numb. Don't ask me what the time is or what I'd like to eat, I hardly know what day it is, I am numb. Don't ask me in-depth questions or even something light, you're best off leaving well alone, I am numb. Don't try to make me ponder, the process only hurts, just let my brain go back to sleep I am numb. It's not that I am shallow or that nothing lies within, it's just that I can't reach it....... I am numb.

    The dentist must have injected too much Novocain in your gums. Good writing that also reminds me a bit of a song by Pink Floyd.

    life gets you like this sometimes. the beauty of poetry is that we can at least express ourselves. i like this in a sad way.
