Numb

The cold sets in
And my limbs numb
But it feels so comforting
So familiar
To not feel anything, anymore
I wish my heart could numb
So it could break
It could shatter
Into thousands of million of pieces
And I wouldn't feel a thing
I could bleed my heart out
And I wouldn't notice,
Wouldn't flinch
Would it be best
To be numb?

The heart doesn't shatter when it breaks. The mind does...

"Don't Want to forget her" didn't have much effect on me, but "Numb" is very nice. I prefer the less in-your-face approach this one has and the tempo you wrote it in. Very good work. It made me want to read it again which is to me is the mark of a good poem. :)
