Rainey Daze and Crazy Nights

Poetry, Paintings, and Ponderings: Through My Eyes

Land of Numb January 3, 2013


anger surges through my veins

pulsing, red-hot rage, then… gone

to the stark and barren Land of Numb

~

time drips by until I awaken once more

my skin crawls with unspent emotions

pulled tightly, it barely contains me

~

emotions flood the my landscape

tears converged on mascara-smeared lids

ready to free fall across pale cheeks

~

but before the waterfall can erupt, my brain recedes

to the foggy, safe Land of Numb

where emotions cease to exist once again

    At the hospital I go to we have a saying, “feel your feelings and stay safe.” But sometimes that’s just impossible, isn’t it? I really like this look into your mind and heart. Thank you for sharing it!

      Anita, it IS sometimes impossible! If I don’t let my mind recede to the “Land of Numb” every now and then, I fear I may LOSE my mind! Thanks for the comment. xox
