Numb short poem

Photo by FranUlloa 

I just want to numb the pain, that’s all
don’t mean to run, don’t mean to hide
don’t want to hurt, don’t want to be found out
don’t want a high, don’t want a low
I just want to numb the pain, that’s all

dreams, they make the loss so real
relived I have, over and over
the agony I can’t share
the truth I cannot speak
the love I cannot expect
the loss I cannot accept
and the pain goes throbs on
I can’t think of anything else

I just want to numb the pain, that’s all
