Numb

By 'Teira Naahi'

There are other chairs within this house
I should know i have not sat in them
There are other windows within this house
But alas they all just face the same way

Childhood reflections
Half truths
Round clues for square solutions
Extroverted introspection
Transparency
NUMB

There is a secret hidden within this room
I should know i have not found it yet
A thinly veiled twist of fate
Born fast from passions waste

I can hear you
As i can feel you
Scar
NUMB

There are people out there beyond these walls
I should know i have actually been outside

Same chair
Curtains drawn
Pale glow
Dim living
Comfortable
NUMB:
