To Feel Your Love 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.
