To Feel Again

Death takes the insecurities out of the living
They say things get better
If you stop fighting the anger goes away
The tears simply dry up
A sheet of ice freezes over the emotions
Leaving you numb
But broken
Storm clouds hover amongst the stars
Waiting to creep back in

Time moves slowly 
But still it moves
The further I get from you
The more it wounds
Life cruelly goes on
Birds still wake
This earth still cries
The heavens shake

This world is cruel
This life restricts
Taking me further from
With every waking breath
I would stop the living to have you back
Give my life for one more kiss

There is a beauty to the restless
We wander amongst the alive
But everyday I find
Your further away with time

I do not want to forget you
I don't wish for this numbness
Or this heavy ice I carry
Oh if I could just change this
If I could still feel
Rid me of this numbness
As emotions make you real
The distant dream you are becoming
Would never exist
Surely it is better to feel
Than be as this

    Very good poem. You captured how it feels to have an unshakable numbness all too well my friend.

    btw, I want to post a poem inspired by yours and name your title as the inspiration for it in a contest by Catie. I think it is called "The heart of it" Hope that is ok by you.
