Numb

Numb

A Poem by Sam

It's gone

All emotion.....

Lost...

Never to be found...

Stuck in the darkness

I'm all alone

My heart is frozen

I'm cold..

My hands are shaking

All I feel

Is weight...

On my shoulders,

From the world

The pressure is astounding

It's funny

I have you

Yet I feel alone

I'm numb...

Waiting for you to come save me...

To wrap your arms around me

And kill the pain inside me

The sum has now doubled

Loneliness is the cause

It stabs at my gut

Terrorizes my heart

Blood spills on the floor

But I couldn't care less...

If I died right here

I wouldn't feel it

That's the beauty of it

Of being numb

You could die

And get what you want

The benefit of it

Is it'd be painless

The question is...

Is it worth it?

Your mind answers that

Yes, and why?

Because your worthless

Just do it and be done with it

You won't regret it

Give it a try

Let me prove it

Put a gun to your head

Pull the trigger

And I promise you...

You won't feel it.

"Loneliness is the cause

One of the worst things in the world is to feel alone in a sea of people. Never feeling loved. Wanting something but pushing it away because it can't be possible, it ISN'T possible. Everything is impossibly gone and all is left is the raw loneliness, making a heart ache.

This poem made those memories of loneliness resurface in my mind, which I know that I will never forget. Loneliness is such a potent entity and threatens to haunt us. You really portrayed how powerful it really is through short, simple phrases and the emotion in here. I really do hope your loneliness goes away.
You have so much, okay? We are here for you. Message me if you feel like talking.

Very deep and powerful, from the depth of the heart, pours the pain and despair of a broken soul. Awesome work

Sam,

This is great writing. Some of the things in the poem I never experienced until I read this poem. That's the sign of a genuine writer. Your honesty and gutsy reveal made this worth reading.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Powerful poetry Sam. It is hard to realize when we go "numb" that we are only "numb" to the pain and hurt of others. We still hurt and suffer inside as we become more and more self focused. The reality is, that if you reach the point of suicide, your "promise" is true. "You won't feel it". Embrace your pain at these hard times and be gald you feel something and then take it to the next level and realize that others feeol your pain as well. Then you are not alone and the numbness can slowly creep away.
Just my take...
great writing.

When we lose ourselves, we can't love anyone else. Trying to get through this same thing. Numbness is the most amazing emotion to me and I understand it but not enough I can ever fathom and in order to feel numb, I don't want to understand it. This is surreal, it packs the punch and it's so straight up I have one word I don't use often and that word is - RESPECT
