Paralyzed

I can’t feel a thing

I miss that zing

I feel numb

I can’t say those words

It hurts my throat

To open up

To speak those words

To bring my heart out

To tell you all about

Keep it out there for you

For you to feel it

For you to steal it

So I slide that feeling

Deep down my lungs

Where it’s not healing

Where no one’s seeing

With the realization

I am changing…
