Am I numb or dumb?
The question is valid. One term does not negate the other.
Numb to your words-swords wielded to hide, abide, impose a belief, a lie.
Dumb to what is real, ideal, what you reveal, in every breath of your life.
Numb to what I should feel, what you steal like your ancestors taught you.
Dumb to what I deserve, what you serve, your nerve, to observe me
Numb to what ought not be, us, you and me, makes no sense in any reality
Dumb to what ought to be, queen, me, king, you, seeds, us, royalty
Numb to pain, gain, freedom, slain, heartbeat, sustains, life maintains
Dumb to loss, the costs, the contracts, the con, the tracts, bad deals, intact
Numb to love, hate, fear, fate, possibilities mate, lovers abate
Dumb to what’s left in the wait, bait, a date, to relate, my choice to vacate
Numb to reality, real lie, spy, cry, die, deceive, receive, a pile, of bile
Dumb to levels, degrees, merits, values, assets, carbon, magic, cosmic channels
Numb to justice, it’s just…us, what is just is, just is, nothing
Dumb to pockets, dockets, sockets, holes, deepening the space of where carbon molds
Numb to you, inflated glob of goals, moles, trolls, roles, no soles, because you have no soul.
Dumb to yield, relinquish, power, my ore-my skull, my mind, mine
Numb to relation-ships, friend-ships, court-ships, owner-ship, rider-ship, space-ship-dumb shit
Dumb. Numb. Mum. Mute. Voiceless. Overlooked. Disregarded. Dumb. Numb.
