Numb

Numb

I want to smoke a cigarette

And have myself a whiskey

Run naked in the falling rain

And scream as if you’d hear

Every vile obscenity

Coursing through my veins

I want to bleed until the need

To feel  you slips away

Here I sit and cower

In a corner of my room

Anesthetized and far-away

Not knowing what to do

The enormity of what I feel

Is eating me alive

This gaping hole

Just sucks me in

I’ll disappear in time

I write about the greatest force on earth that, I believe, lives on forever and surpasses all else. "All your poems read like I am watching an artist use words instead of colours full of feeling." ~Anon.
