Sometimes I feel so numb

I’m not sure if it’s the sadness or the lack of sun

I look to you and you pass without even a glance in my direction

I’ve waited so long for just the smallest sign

Just a sign that you know that I exist

I’d be happy with even just a smile

I don’t ask for much

Just enough to bring some life back

Into the lifeless stump called my heart

But you found me here weak and crying

My one wish is to feel just a bit of warm again

Just gently against my skin

So the numbness will no longer exist
