It is a curious feeling

It is a curious feeling
When something happens that hurts so much
That you cannot feel it
Like water so hot it feels cold
Emotions so strong you feel none

When at the first word you feel your heart freeze
Still beating
But cold
And then it spreads with every beat
Seeping through your veins, and freezing them as well.

Walking on a tightrope
Unsure of what is below
And what lies ahead
Putting such thoughts out of your mind
To focus on staying alive

What should I do
What should I feel
Where should I go
I’m standing so still
I think I’m frightened
It’s a curious feeling

It is a curious feeling

Artist's Description

This was written whilst I was feeling what was being described. The feeling was alien. I’m glad I caught the tightrope, though, this non-feeling is certainly better than any emotions I am otherwise likely to face. I do wonder whether I will get them back, though.

Edit:
Feeling returned. I suppose that’s a good thing…
