– how did one become so numb? –

Gave it up too easily?

Yes, I sure did.

I saw the reports,

heard the commentary,

read the tweets…

and now?

My heart is barely a thump,

my soul is barely a whisper,

and my mind is just not worth discussing.

Perhaps it would be of some service to act…

scream,

question,

fight,

demand,

slay,

LOVE…

perhaps it would be just

another hopeless romance.

Quitting is a behavior I’m not proud of,

even under the most respectable circumstances.

Numbness, however, has come to control.

When outrage should at least be front and center,

slumber is all I request.
