Anesthesia For The Emotions - Poem by Champs Ulysses Cabinatan

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
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
infl icting
who got an anesthesia for this pain
