Numb

by devil racer 4 years ago in performance poetry

Poem of a Deviled Mind

Lifeless and still

My mind rants very ill

Give me that little red pill

To end this suffering

I yet to tame

Everyday conducts the same

No fame

I become a forgotten name

The screams are silenced

Because I’m insane

I have no one to blame

Only myself

Bleeding for help

Grinding teeth

A morning bleak

I still seek.

Searching for the source of my pain

One day I’ll try again

For now I give in

I have no reason to live.

I have nothing.

How can I give?

I see what’s not there

I listen to what’s not here

I show no fear…

I have no cares.

Catch me if you can.

I no longer crave to write

So I broke my hands

And hoped to feel again,

I am Numb.

I created my own sins

Laughing with a vicious grin.

Demented vision

A quick incision

Rendered my decision.

A remembered Lesson

Kept me guessin’

In decadence.
