it's late and you're just getting home
you had a fun night surrounded by people you told me you hated
you will sleep well without a worry on your mind

it's late and i am in my room with the blinds shut
i have been alone yet surrounded by silence and darkness
i might fall asleep tonight if my mind stops torturing me with the image of you

i haven't crossed your mind once

you haven't left mine

you’re happy
you’re partying and going out every night
maybe you are drinking the pain away
maybe the drinking helps you forget about me
maybe you just enjoy feeling numb

i'm numb too
i have become emotionally shut down
i feel nothing
no pain
no joy

you don't miss me
you don't care

My poem entitled "numb" is about a recent breakup I endured that ended quite badly. This is the result.
