Can I join you in the numbness?
Can I join you in the pain?
As the pain recedes it leaves behind a
A hazy film of memories that still bind
Me to you.
Blinding white fire melts what remains Of my heart.
Cinder, ash and smoke are all that show
Proof that I did once own such a thing.
Can you not see that the uncertainty Eats away at the sanity I once posessed
But no longer can call my own?
I am part of the collective;
The pain, the anger, and the sadness All crowd my mind-
Forcing me to face this bleak reality that I must confront
Day by day by day.
