Anesthetic



I’m numb
And senseless.
My feelings are forever paralyzed
And I’m in a daze.
Immobilized,
I’m frozen in time.
I’m deadened
And dulled.
I’ve forever retreated to my crying silence.
I’m desensitized
And stunned.
I’m forever stuck in my depression.
I’m stupefied
And insensible.
I’m trapped in this unfeeling state
Where I'm
Forever pinned down by this sorrow,
Forever terrorized by this depression,
Forever lost in this state of numbness.

About this poem

This is basically about depression switching from feeling everything at once to complete nothingness.
