The numbness has gone

September 26, 2007
By Erica Brunt, West Haven, CT

The numbness has gone,
Now nothing but freedom.
Why is it like this?
Something is amiss.

Stable and warm -
Leftover doubt and worry.
There's a chance I can love you again,
But I don't know when.

I wish it could be perfect.
I want all to end well.
I wonder if you do miss me;
You're all I can see.

Tell me your secret.
Let it all run free.
I'll look at you with wonder,
Since your smile takes me under.
