He is my Novocain,

He is my relief from pain.

Making me forget my hurts,

Leaving numbness where they were.

Chasing troubles from my mind,

Leaving happy thoughts behind.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If ever I should leave his side,

Thoughts intrude, wounds gape wide.

Numbness ceases, thoughts persist.

I wonder, “Why should I exist?”

Waiting for him in the dark,

Leaves me only visions stark.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Novocain, relief from pain,

Come and take my hurts away.

Perhaps you’re not what’s best for me,

But you keep me living, sane, and free.
