Poets are those who love,--who feel great truths, And tell them.

I cannot feel, I want to but I just can't.
Because if I do then all I feel is pain.
I don't wanna feel pain because then I remember.
When I feel pain I have to hold myself together,
So that I don't fall apart.
My heart aches when I feel, so I don't,
I just stop then the pain goes away,
to return another day. Unless just maybe I should let it out;
No I can't, I can't feel that anymore, I can't, I won't.
So I stand still, I don't move, and after a time I go numb again.
It's not easy and I don't like it,
but if being numb means not being in pain, I'll take it.
