Anesthesia for the Emotions


I need a dose of anesthesia
for this emotion in turmoil
a pill of pain reliever
isn’t enough to kill the pain
Paracetamol or
Ibuprofen
cannot numb this feeling
It’s deep inside my heart
but a cardiologist is of no help

I need an emotional anesthesia
this feeling
bringing me down
I don’t know where it came from
It affects every nerves
the spine
up to the gray matter
more painful than a toothache

it troubled my appetite
it troubled my sleep
lovesick
nostalgic
anguish
infl icting
who got an anesthesia for this pain

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
