Numb

I'm listless
dragging
myself,
lost within,
lost without
no answers
dead weight
holding me
back, beyond
despondent.

Can you see me?
No,
I'm not here,
I'm not there,
I'm not anywhere.

Conscious body
walking,
talking, feeling,
yet numb
to priorities,
numb to reality,
numb
desiring
motivation
only receiving
exhaustion.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? "
Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

How eloquently you have described this altered state...and the format of this piece really highlights the mood...wonderful writing, Lost Dreamer.
