Numb

May 5, 2008
By Kristin Malagise, Fairfield, CT

I gasp for air but get,
Nothing.
I want to cry, but can't find the
Tears.
A feeling of emptiness overcomes me.
A feeling as if I,
am no longer in my own body.
Finally the tears
fall
down
as if a dam had suddenly broken.
A Rush of emotions take over and,
leave my body almost lifeless.
Sitting frozen. Unable to move, blink, ...
or think.
I try to feel,
but all it causes is hurt.
A hurt that is so unbearable,
I'm surprised it’s even possible to feel this way.
It's the kind of hurt I wouldn't wish upon,
Anyone.
It's a hurt that leaves me feeling alone.
A hurt that leaves my heart breaking,
with no one ...
to save it.
