paralyzed [poem]

these words are the stab wound
and the blood running from it
each poem
a knife
jerked free from this spine of mine
you make me feel so numb
nerves severed but
still alive
paralyzed from the heart down
like this is all I’ll ever feel
like this is who I am now
like this will never not feel cold inside
like this
just like this
