Uncomfortably Numb: Trapped In My Shell


I see the them beam in through the window
Lucid rays of love light the way forth


I find myself cruelly restricted
As I strive to feel their constant warmth


They sit just outside my trajectory
I can smell their aroma with clarity


But each time I attempt to connect
I begin then to question my sanity


What keeps them at bay why taunt me like this
It’s a slap in the face while I lean in to kiss


It’s the ultimate hurt to deny me this way
For as much as I struggle they keep me at bay


These fruitless endeavors all lead me nowhere
They’re fading with swiftness I’m losing their glare


It’s starting to dawn I’m trapped in this place
I raise up my hands but can’t feel a face



The darkness engulfs me it’s pulling me back
There’s no way they’ll grant me the freedom I lack


My will is depleting my faith has been tested
And each passing moment I’m being digested


It looks so familiar I know this locale
I’m slowly dissolving I’m almost done now


Uncomfortably numb revealing no feeling
I thought I was better was sure I was healing


No oxygen left I’m asphyxiated
I’m trapped in my shell now alone and castrated




Truly, Really, Clearly, Sincerely,

Keeper of the Crimson Quill
