Numbness


Craving the numbness
I turn inward
Fighting my urges
My urges to do self harm
I care nothing of the sort
For that around me
Once in the state of numbness
I fear for those cravings
And that state of mind
Not sure who I will turn into
Or how far I will go
Afraid that one day my secrets
The secrets I do not even know
Will carry me to my death
A death that will sadden many
Except for myself
For my strength has slipped away
Far enough that my reach
Will send me over the ledge

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
