personal feelings about the lack of emotion [[numbness]] vs. bad emotions

Submitted:May 26, 2010    Reads: 36    Comments: 0    Likes: 0   

sometimes i feel

devoid of emotion

blank, like

the paper

before the poem

the words

that flow out


the words

that my mouth

refuses to speak

because i get

too nervous

and then

the voices

and the blank;


sometimes i prefer

that feeling

to the feeling

of being


with loneliness

daunted by

the realization

that i'm always

going to have to

walk this dark,

desolate stretch

of road

we call life


and believe me,

that cuts

the deepest.
