A feeling so numb
Like lost my little finger,
Befriending the tail
Gone missing for long
A fragment of soul neatly exsected
Long warped my mind with denial
Content traded smartly
For the organic melancholy
Seeded in the soil of willing fault
Like meaningful the whole life
A residue so charming
A sensation so blissful
In the fullness of unwillingness
To let go and forgive.
