Numb.

A box filled with anguish landed in my palms today. Suppressed feelings of dreariness emerged and down the black hole I went, Spiraling down into obscurity. This cocoon of gloom never strays because it knows I never will. I may flirt with tranquility, fluttering my wings into communities of others who don’t feel like me, … Continue reading Numb.
