Numbness

by Darina Tepavitcharova

Numbness is the silence,
The silence of you heart.
You stare at your mirror,
And it's portrait lies.

Numbness is a feeling,
It is a state of mind. 
Too afraid to look,
As its' depth subsides.

Numbness means it's over,
Over for the two of us.
The scents of the night,
Lost in our goodbyes.

Sweet and simple but not enough substance to it to keep it in my top four. Promising and heart-felt though.

It is short but conveys the message when relations between close friends , lovers or relatives are broken down..! good luck:)
