Numb

Anesthetized,
Apathetic,
Callous,
Comatose
Dazed,
Detached
Frozen,
Indifferent,
Listless,
Paralyzed,
Remote,
Unfeeling.

Roget’s has dozens of words
To describe my state of being.
Numbness is protective steel,
Keeping myself safe from the
Sharpness of amplified feelings.

Numbness is a blanket of apathy
That protects my soft underbelly
From flaming darts that fly at me.

Natural or by man contrived,
A deadness of heart and soul,
Keeps me trudging in this life.
