Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I appreciate it.
I wrote this poem called ‘Numb’ in the Spring of last year to describe exactly how i felt to everything going on around me. Spring is a wonderful time of year yet I could not see it.
I hope that you like this poem.
I numb all my feelings and emotions
So that I can seem as calm as the oceans
No highs or lows every day
Just getting through in any way
I try and hide the shame
From the many sins against my name
Too scared to love for fear of punishment
Too scared to be open for fear of judgement
Can I embrace the vulnerability?
I’m not sure that I have the ability
To be an open book
To allow everyone an inside look
Into my heart and soul
And see why I can’t be whole
But maybe I can defy
And I can begin and I can try
I believe in the need for connections
I’ve steered clear of them like an infection
But I know now the value
Of the connections with you, you, you, you and you.
Belief is everything
