a blanket of numb

hidden under a blanket of numb

your fire

has expired

sending up exhausted

puffs of steam

the dullness in your eyes

comes

because the capacity for smiles

was destroyed with the tears

that all lie dried up

in a dark well

that now echoes

daily with

a silent lament

heavily obscured

underneath

the cover of numb
