Numbness

Updated: Nov 10

I’ve been avoiding the thoughts

avoiding the pain, the anger, the words

diving into mindless video games

headfirst into projects that could wait


nothing too easy

that would leave me time to think


social media is addictive

but not today

and not tomorrow


my feeds are just funhouse mirrors of my own pain

and I’m trying to avoid that


but i can’t sleep in bed tonight

in my own home

without thinking


they’d justify my death too
