Relief is what I’m supposed to feel,
But I feel none.
I want to feel numb
My body becoming a shell, protected
From any hurt that could possibly come my way,
My body enveloped in a shield.
I want to feel better
Be on the path for recovery
A better, fuller life.
But all I feel is pain.

Nicely penned very relateable
Thanks, it’s always nice to read something that you can relate to. That’s something that I try to achieve because it’s just such a rewarding feeling when you come across something like that!
Great poem. And I agree with the first comment, something a lot of people in different situations will be able to relate to.
Thank you, I truly appreciate your response :]
