Absent And Numb - Poem by Elizabeth Walker

My mind is full my empty heart so lost
Holding onto driftwood on the ocean being tossed
Cant focus during the day at night I cant get sleep
There was a time when my heart I let you keep
I feel so numb I just don’t care
Its got me looking for answers everywhere
I don’t want to talk I want to scream
Can anyone tell me what all this means?

    Answer is so simple
    while questions are complicated
    fill your heart with the symphony of love
    and answer with self respect
