Feeling Nothing

Not a single tear drops from my eye

I can’t remember the last time I cried

It’s as if I immerse myself in ice

Or had a pressure point hit twice

You could hit me across the face

Or give my tongue a really bad taste

And I wouldn’t give a damn

I’m not honking a horn in a traffic jam

For I feeling nothing

That’s what I get for trusting

The person I thought you were

Memories are all a blur

Of emotion and highs and lows

Of taking off our clothes

Of love and smiles and laughing

You had taken up photographing

But now all those polaroids are faded

And, really, I have become jaded

I decided it was better to not feel

With the devil I did make a deal

The highs and the lows are so overrated

See, now I feel so liberated

To not feel anything at all

Never again will I fall
