numb

A Poem By little woman // 3/17/2013

lying on the floor
staring at the space
below the door
sobbing
praying
wanting to go numb
wishing I could close my eyes
and this day would be done
wanting to sleep
in a dark room
and live in my dreams
or else
float away
to somewhere warm and hazy
somewhere numb
I don't want to feel
anything
anymore
but maybe
the sun will rise tomorrow
the world will be clear and bright
and I will be glad that I am not numb
maybe

This was a very good poem. I like the way it is not 'explaining' what pain feels like, but it is written as if you were in pain. It is extremely effective!
'Staring at the space below the door' was a really atmospheric line!
