Uncomfortably Numb

My apathy is my melancholy

I live a comfortable quiet life

I scribe poems

for a few friends to read

My wife crafts her crafts


Self engrossed we are, yes indeed


We fill our kitchen cupboard

nestled here nicely in the suburb

As a bear in hibernation

I find myself, at times,

living a state of self isolation


Is this the reason I feel

so uncomfortably numb?


My tears are dormant, no rain will come

My apathy is my melancholy


This unbearable ennui

should not be my reality


Help me please

There has to be a better way


Lets help ourselves

by helping our neighbors

lift the loneliness of today.

So we all may have, everyday,

a Happy Valentines Day!
