Numb Confusion

I keep trying to express
how I feel about you
in words.
Prose or poetry – I don’t care,
just words, any words!
I can’t understand my own thoughts.
I don’t have any emotions.
But that’s impossible.
How can I be numb to someone that was my entire world?
How can I not miss you?
How can I read the things you write…
and feel nothing?
Yet, without you, I’m incomplete.
You don’t make me happy,
but I’m not happy without you.
I don’t want to waste my time
indulging in pointless conversations
that lead to no where,
but nor do I want to stop talking.
How do I know,
whether it’s just you that I don’t want…
or whether there’s nothing I want?
How do I comprehend myself?

This is just a little thank you
In four stanzas with a rhyme
Because I’m still quite new.
I’m glad to have your time

I feel so accepted and pleased
That all my thoughts and fears
Haven’t ended with me teased
Or even bored you to tears

I’m grateful that one hundred
Of you follow, I love you all!
And just incase you wondered
My main subject is called Paul

So thank you for putting up
With my moaning, rage and pain
My constantly half empty cup
You’ve helped to fill again

Song (title suggestions very welcome!)

I change like the winter
Transforming the scene
A blinding bright light
A warmth so serene
Then overnight frost forms
It sparkles everywhere
Like fingers of white ice
It strips my soul bare

I don’t try to fight it
It would just be futile
You can’t alter your nature
So embrace a lifestyle
I let it absorb me
A conversion so quick
From happy to angry
From well to plain sick

(chorus)
I change like the seasons, distorting the view
An emotional dysfunction, it will ruin you
Complicated mazes, you’re better off blind
Than figuring out, what goes on in my mind

So just leave it baby
Don’t drive yourself mad
You’ll never understand it
Please don’t feel bad
It might be intriguing
You might want to see
The workings of a monster
That lives within me

(chorus)
I change like the seasons, distorting the view
An emotional dysfunction, it will ruin you
Complicated mazes, you’re better off blind
Than figuring out, what goes on in my mind

Why you’re still standing there
I just can’t comprehend
What more can I do
To prove you can’t mend
The broken connections
The way that I think
The way I fly high
And the next second sink

(chorus)
I change like the seasons, distorting the view
An emotional dysfunction, it will ruin you
Complicated mazes, you’re better off blind
Than figuring out, what goes on in my mind

Oh I change like the seasons, distorting the view
An emotional dysfunction, that can’t ruin you
Walk through my mazes, you’re no longer blind
To the truth that it’s you, that plays with my mind

Lack of Inspiration

It seems to me

That happiness

Does not bring me inspiration

I can write tragic poems

And heartbreaking stories

When anguish is strong

But now I’m happy

And I can’t seem to

Put pen to paper

And create

Why is that?

Is happiness not strong too?

Is it not a real

Powerful emotion?

Why do poetry and prose

Drip like ink into writing

On a blank page

When I am overwhelmed

With anger, despair or hurt?

But now that I’m content

I can mean the smile

That spreads across my face

There’s a skip in my step

And my heart is full

All the world is a stage

But I don’t need to act anymore

Happiness

Maybe it’s just

That I’m so unfamiliar

With the feeling

That inspiration has fled

Here’s hoping it comes back
