Mary Jane's Shoes

Mary Jane's Shoes

Musings of one person among many. Not exceptional in any way, as with all, I have exceptional experiences and varied reactions to those events. Mine is one of many life stories and how I manage and cope with the events which make my life my own, I attempt to put forth by way of my writings.

If Numb

March 11, 2016

If Numb~

if you see the flames, 

  but do not feel the warmth

if you see the smile, 

  yet do not feel the laugh

if you know the punch, 

  but do not feel its pain

If numbness is left,

  from stiffening frostbite


move inside,

  deep inside the home where winter snows 

live beyond windows

and fire burns in the belly, 

and in the hearth


notice, and dissect, and linger
you will learn again of keenness and sensibility
