“Numb The Pain” (poem / poetry)

Clingfilm my senses, please wrap them up,

Don’t let them out, don’t let them be touched,

I can’t chance feeling, just one more emowsh,

Could tip me into phases of being exposed.

Save me from the fierce pull of this tug of war,

It leaves me with rope burns, overwhelmingly sore,

Come to think of it, my resistance makes the pain,

I need to let go, and become whole again.

As promised, here is yet another of my exclusive (published, but never before shared online) poems, from my most recent book, “Poems That Move You”.

This piece focuses on the moments where we feel most sensitive and overwhelmed, the reflex reaction to which, is usually our inclination to wrestle with our emotions, but that often only adds fuel to the fire, leading to us hurting and scarring ourselves further.

Instead it may help to loosen our grip and allow the emotions to flow more naturally. It’s okay to grieve, it’s okay to be down… life cant always be sunshine and rainbows, there are gonna be dark spells, what matters most is how we weather the storms, enduring the downpour and learning alot about ourself and others in the process.

That’s the key lesson that pain teaches us really though, isn’t it… and sometimes our suffering is drawn out, simply because we fail to grasp this simple truth.

So invest your energy in enhancing your understanding, rather than in fighting the process.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
