Numb - Poem by Isaac Helms

Asking you to stop when I am done with you
Have no idea what else I can do
Can’t even keep to my own resolution
Knowing a drug isn’t the solution
Rubbing in all my imperfections
Cast off like an unwanted infection
I can’t feel anything at last
Demons banished that dwell upon my past

Being constantly under siege is killing me
Continuing to torment and not let me be
Hold on to a memory that doesn’t exist
Raiders that attack only in mist
Making every possible mistake
Falling into a sleep that I cannot wake
Never accepted for what I would sacrifice
How can I pay this price?

Words that bring everlasting pain
Keep trying with nothing to gain
Already has the name of brand
Issues that no one can understand
Realized what I did too late
Life laughs as it plays with fate
Are they going to ever come?
Only living forever numb
