Numb

I falter when I step
The way it spins around me
S l o w l y at first,
               then faster and faster
But I still don't fall
All I want is the ground
I can't feel it beneath my feet
Not even the pain
             I'm numb to everything
But it DEMANDS to be felt
So instead I lose my breath
And my vision fades
Scattered and broken pieces of your face
            invade my mind
Distorted voices whisper against my ear
But the words are muddled,
            worse, dripping with venom
Sing me to sleep
I want to forget
