Today of all days I wish I felt numb

experienced nothing

no emotion

no feelings


but i don’t

i feel everything


I need a surge protector

to block

to protect

the bombardment of emotion flooding me

And in this tsunami

i can’t find the ground

or embrace reality

out of touch and overwhelmed

the anesthesia has worn off

I am naked


and vulnerable

be gentle

for this soul is breaking

it’s cracking

my cocoon wide open
