Numb

Not a great place to be

Numb

Wrapped in bubble wrap

Attempting to avoid the pain

Numb

An anesthetic that flows through one’s veins

Yet, this protection comes at a price

Deaden the emotions, try not to feel

Pain is avoided but so too are joy,

bliss, happiness, awe, wonder

All blanketed in the soft swirling fog

Pain is held at bay, at arm’s length

Thinking that one’s strength is dependent

 on the anesthetic of numbness

But it steals one’s ability to love fully,

 laugh joyously,

live courageously

Numb

  1. Numb is a nifty little tool that can trick us into believing we’re OK. When we’re not. Sometimes the relief of “numb” is necessary, but buyer beware! It’s only a useful place to visit, not a great place to take up residence, because as you so perfectly put it, it shuts off ALL our feeling, even the good stuff.
