Numb

The darkest corner of
this hollow cage holds
Thud-thud
a scared, little girl.
Thud-thud
She’s not sure why
she cries with the rain
Thud-thud
on the inside,
Thud-thud
when the tears won’t
fall down her cheek
Thud-thud
on the outside.
Thud-thud
In fact, it’s like
she feels numb, and
Thud-thud
nothing scares her more.
Thud-thud
Of course she smiles and
laughs like normal
Thud-thud
people do, but something
Thud-thud
isn’t connecting. Well to
be accurate, something
Thud-thud
seems broken.
Thud-thud
But how would she
know? She’s just a
Thud-thud
scared, little girl.
Thud-thud
And she’s in the
darkest corner of
Thud-thud
this hollow cage.
Thud-thud
