Numb - Poem by Lola Teru

Beat me till am numb
Feeling is overly burdensome
Words can't bubble forth either
To stop caring seems good
But it sure would worsen things
Seeing the pain
Hurts more than feeling it

I can't see myself anymore
Lost in the sea of worry
Bittersweet is what i taste
Never mind is all my mouth can mutter
But my whole body is screaming
Please mind!
Don't forget me i beg
Just maybe your subconscious would
Reach out to mine....
And it'll all be good

Making sense is all
I tire out doing.....
I'm waiting in the dark
For someone to come take me
Somewhere new

It was a time in september
Wen i was thinking
Just maybe
All will be well
But those were just thoughts
Wake me up when september ends!
The pain it carries as each day
Slowly crawls by is depressing
So as burdensome
Maybe other 'embers
Would awaken my body members

How do u expect me to just look
When there are a million and two things to see
How do u expect me to be blank
When my mind is fully operative
I am NUMB!

    Wow! Really great poem.
    I often feel numb myself and can totally relate to most of what you are saying here. Sometimes feeling is overwhelming and I must escape any way I can, sometimes feeling numb is a vacation to me.
    I really like your style.
    Thanks for sharing. :)
