Comfortably Numb



Glazed, my sight Dulled perceptions Blurred images flashing by All the world All the sights All the senses Effortlessly dumbed The restless breeze is just a Ripple Hear it weep Hear it cry Making its way through the trees Through my hair Every realization Moving in and out of focus Every realization Stunned Every awakening gathered, Tethered Every movement of the body, mind Measured Every epiphany Temporarily shunned

Today I want naught Of sentience The lights fade away into Nothingness Dimmed, all extinguished Blunt The raindrops herald My oblivion

Tonight I am Comfortably numb
