“Numb”

 

She hadn’t planned

on a long

weekend

but after calling

out

for work

on Thursday

it didn’t make

any sense

to force herself

into playing a

role

on Friday

she couldn’t

convince herself

into believing

she was ready

to play

so she let

Friday

slip away

as well,

another 24-hour

period

that just disappeared

from her life

leaving nothing

behind

no memories

or sticky notes

to mark it’s

passing,

two days gone

with the weekend

up a head

and she still

hasn’t found

herself,

she drifted into

Saturday

still lost

unable to grasp

onto

any of the

threads

hanging down

from the day

above her

one that evolved

around her

as if she

wasn’t even

there

encapsulated

in the middle

of a day

she didn’t

belong in,

she tries to

connect

to the afternoon

sun

it’s rays

running down

the length of

her bare legs

but she can’t

feel

it’s warmth

lightly caressing

her milky white

skin

a permanent

cold chill

runs through

her body

one that she

hasn’t been

able to shake

for the better

part of a

year,

she can’t even

remember

the last time

a hot summer

sun

beat down on

her

and she got

even a tingle

from its brilliant

light,

she wished

that she could

just walk to

the sun

everyday

getting a little

closer

till she was

able to feel

it’s hot breath

on her face

or step off

into the fiery

liquid gas pools

that make up

it’s heart,

maybe then

she’ll know what

it’s like to

feel something

once again,

besides

just being

numb

to the world

around her...
