Throwback Thursday Poetry: Numb

there is no pain you are receiving
it’s in your head, you’re not really bleeding
another slash will do nothing
cut the skin and feel nothing

that’s not a vein that you are cutting
it’s only air, there is nothing
your whole body is slowly numbing
you cannot feel anything

the numbness is captivating
it’s now slowly spreading
you begin to feel nothing
for anyone or anything

you’ve lost your chance to be happy
everyone thinks that you are crazy
you go on feeling nothing
slowly, slowly everything is numbing

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
