~*~ Numbing Silence ~*~

Numbing Silence
by Ashley
For John

As hard as I try
to sit and describe
exactly what I
feel inside
I become speechless
(not normal for me!)
dumb--if you will
Numb to the fact
that you're waiting for me/
/to say something.

So I open my mouth
and try to make sense
but I just end up sounding
terribly dense
(perhaps normal?)
dumb--if you will
Numb to the fact that
you're waiting for me/
/to think of something.

I try my hardest
I truly do!
to think of what I
can say to you
(I don't know if this is the best way!)
but the only words that come to mind
get stuck somewhere between
Brain
and
mouth

dumb--I've fallen completely
dumb! and I'm
Numb--not realizing anything/
/to the fact that you're
waiting for me//
//to be you're only one//

... SILENCE ...
(dumb.)
