A Numb Doll

Like a glistering mist, the shadow of his body faded away,

The tears held in for so long found their freedom that day

The salty water dripping from her eyes,

Cleansed her life from all the joy.

The light breeze made her body shudder with a chill,

A sense of numbness swept over her as she wept.

Reminiscing the times when she first met him,

His blushing cheeks, his charming gaze

He said he couldn't believe it, is it happening for real?

She laughed and looked away, everything was surreal.

It was ecstasy, sitting there with her head on his shoulder,

They say don't be elated,

Or life will steal away from you,

The reason for existence, the happiness you cling to.

It isn't normal to stay sane in love,

The longing desire to be with each other replaced the joy with gloom,

Frustration, desperation, and loneliness,

Why love must be so difficult?

Was it a loud crash or just a muffled moan?

When his lips touched hers and made her soul bloom

Soft, wet, and gentle,

Remembering that touch made her sentimental

Wiping the tears from her face,

She rose like a phoenix full of grace

Locking those precious memories in her mind,

She moved forward to face the daily grind

Promising herself she would never look back,

She will never love again,

She left her heart with him

And with her heart, he took her sanity too.

A numb doll, a glum doll.
