He said he loved me today
And like the days before
You could see the joy on his face
Delicate pride lost in a moment of certainty

And I felt…
Nothing
No heart beats
No angels singing

Just whispers of what should be there.
The joy of the passed me by
And like a thought caught on a child’s imagination, gone.

He told me that he loved me today
And like all the days before
I felt for certain this
Not a feeling but a state of being

Numb

Posted by:jjnibbs

I love food and community. Pretty simple right? Life should be simple and full of opportunities to grow and become a better person.

  1. Maybe the most pleasing things
    is for us to hear “I love you”
    those three words sound magical
    even more when they are true.

    Cannot say why when heard
    someone can go a state of numb
    maybe is a question of believing
    or is about for all that dirty slump.

    Don’t just believe everything
    but instead, look for the action
    find what demonstrate real love
    after all, words can be a distraction.

    This is why you should read this
    we shouldn’t focus much on a word
    it is not what we say that matters
    actions matter a lot more in the world.
