me trying to describe how i feel unsuccessfully

so completely numb

i don’t know

i don’t know how to explain this feeling

i don’t know how to explain this feeling that i have

but there’s this shell

but there’s this shell wrapped around my body

but there’s this shell wrapped around my body,

blankets cushioning

blankets cushioning my breaking

and holding me

and holding me in its arms

and holding me in its arms like it’s the only thing

and holding me in its arms like it’s the only thing that’s keeping me

and holding me in its arms like it’s the only thing that’s keeping me from shattering

and i’m so completely numb

and i’m so completely numb to the pain you’ve brought me

and i’m so completely numb to the pain you’ve brought me,

but distantly

but distantly,

but distantly, through the walls

but distantly, through the walls i can hear the rain

but distantly, through the walls i can hear the rain,

each individual drop

each individual drop scattering

each individual drop scattering apart

each individual drop scattering apart like the relationships

each individual drop scattering apart like the relationships i’m so carelessly

leaving

leaving behind

leaving behind,

but the thing is

but the thing is,

but the thing is, i don’t have it in me

but the thing is, i don’t have it in me to care

but the thing is, i don’t have it in me to care,

so i let the rain

so i let the rain trace my skin

so i let the rain trace my skin,

so i let the rain trace my skin, making it’s way from my eyes

so i let the rain trace my skin, making it’s way from my eyes in the blood

of murdered hearts

crimson scars

and dimly glowing snow

and dimly glowing snow,

i’m letting everything

i’m letting everything go

i’m letting everything go,

and you just watch

and you just watch me

and you just watch me leave.

so completely numb // hymn
