In ruins, or in tact.
I am numb to that valiant ache in my back
In my chest,
In my head,
My heart’s heavier than lead
And graphite is the only thing it pumps
Through its cracks.
I am numb to my person,
Whether broken or whole.
I am numb to that resilient drive in my soul.
I am numb to my kingdom,
The museums in my heart hold now only history,
