Numb

as the sun rises,
like a zombie,Numbness
trapped in this dream
i watch life pass by;

i wandered alone,
fighting all that came in my way,
struggling to make sense of this
war, that does not seem to stop;

a shell of what i used to be,
i wear a mask to hide me from
the vultures that prowl all around,
wanting something to chew on;

no emotion,
no pain and,
no happiness,
just a haunted emptiness;

yelling and screaming,
hiding behind closed doors,
watching life pass by
with my empty eyes;

alone i sit,
in the grip of darkness,
as the arms of silence slowly engulf me,
a strange numbess takes over me;
