I can feel the wetness of your tears
the warmth of your breath
your soft, smooth flesh as I lend you my ears
But I cannot feel
I cannot feel the pain in your heart
nor the sorrow painted in your eyes
or the betrayal you try to hide when you start
 
I can understand that something is wrong
but I simply cannot name it
Perhaps it's been there all along
But I don't comprehend
I don't comprehend this barren feeling
devoid of all emotion
I don't feel anything, though I know I should; I've not been healing
 
I can feel so much agony
Such torture should send needles down my spine
A hollow feeling, the way I act is blasphemy
I can't feel emotions that I should
When you cry, I wipe away your tears, but I don't know why
Even when I hold you so tender and close
I cannot feel you, I want to, but I can't; I deserve to die
