Trying to numb the pain
Of a broken heart and a beaten brain
Though the remedies used, are nothing short of insane
As we only misuse, abuse, and sustain.

Caught in a cycle, of trying to defeat a feeling
By merely delaying it, fictional healing
For what goes numb, comes back screaming
Nothing is overcome, till one ceases to run, and delves into dealing.
