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



me 012c

    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
