how is it am i numbing

how is it am i numbing
(here in the arms of alternationing-ing)

this spangling perverse-a-nating rasp
is grinding up against me
rapidly erasing me on
in this concrete plaza of fools
but how can it i be knowing
if no callous skin is showing
and the pain’s no longer growing
my knees they stiffening harder
crawling in the glass of sugared sands
but how can it i be knowing
if no callous skin is showing
and the pain’s no longer growing
wallow’n in this frigid-ing wallow’n
the colding is losing its cold
but how can it i be knowing
if no callous skin is showing
and the pain’s no longer growing
there is no feeling of feeling
same is same and same is same
but how can it i be knowing
if no callous skin is showing
and the pain is no longer growing

One thought on “how is it am i numbing

  1. We are numb to the suffering of others and we are numb to the cause of suffering within ourselves… it’s so sad
    One can only pray for wisdom discernment and enlightenment…

    So powerful: ” …how can it I be knowing if no callous skin is showing and the pain is no longer growing…”

    These poems are so powerful today they moved my spirit #Amazing #Profound
