Numb

I didn’t ask to feel this way, I just managed to succumb,
To all the things in the world that make a person numb.

A life filled with happiness, a life filled with glee
A life filled with emptiness, sounds ‘bout right to me.

Feelings that I used to know, violation and betrayal. The first to take me over. Soon depression followed with a total lack of control. Starvation soon became my friend. I guess that’s how it goes. Paranoia came on fast, I guess I should of known none of this would ever last but numbness came to slow. Fear and terror not far behind, while hatred really shined. Love was no where to be found except in my best friend. When he died that was soon put down to rest. Tragedy and heartbreak were always fond of me, but I didn’t really like them or want their company. Loneliness held my hand on many late night walks, only to disappear when pain and torment tried to appear. Getting closer it would seem to what I feel now, just a few more feelings took their toll before I lost them all.

I didn’t ask to feel this way, I just managed to succumb,
To all the things in the world that make a person numb.
I didn’t want to feel this way, I just happened to succumb,
Surviving things in the world that make a girl go numb.

Lets not forget helplessness or desperation, I’m sure I’m not the only one to be intimate with them. Denial even came my way to visit with it’s friends, anger and frustration stuck around for much too long. They over stayed their welcome, as did the dawn. Feelings had to overwhelm before I could over come and start to feel the way I do, totally, completely numb. I never tell the details because most people know that what it takes to feel this way is way to hard to know. Those that never get it or the ones that I admire it means they have the strength to handle what they’ve been given. The final feeling I remember was feeling very weak right before I passed out. When I woke up my feels all were gone.

I didn’t ask to feel this way, I just managed to succumb,
To all the things in the world that make a person numb.

re: Intense!

I was feeling a little intense when I wrote this one. Not as much ryhming as ranting here.

Intense!
