Numbness



I am not in the fetal position.
I feel like I should be.
You may catch me smiling.
Don't be fooled.
Numbness is a defense
my body uses
so I can
move 
through
the 
day.
Don't feel sorry for me.
It is life
...and death.
But I do like to know
you're there.

Tears. I've stopped noting every 24th. It took awhile. Peace be with you. I know, not now. But one day I pray peace be with you.
