If I Were Numb

If I were numb,

To the pain,

To the burn,

To the lies.

If I were numb,

To the needles

In my nerves,

As I cry.

If I were numb,

To the sorrow,

To the anger,

To the fear.

If I were numb,

To every diagnosis,

Every joke,

Every tear.

If I were numb,

To the hate

That I feel

For myself.

If I were numb,

To the relationships,

To the joy

I put on the shelf.

If I were numb,

To every word,

To every look

Sent my way.

If I were numb,

Then I would have

Nothing

Left to say.
