Novocaine

As of late,

My mind is laid to waste

By both the good

And the bad

Of daily existence.

The simple

Ebb and flow

Of the highs and lows

Has eroded

The sand

From between the toes

Of my sanity,

Leaving me clinging

To the edges

Of the cliff,

Or ledge

Above the drop.

It isn’t even as if

I am buried

Beneath the burdens

Of unrelenting turmoil-

But even the highs

Of joy

Have cooked

And overloaded

The synapses and nerve relays that keep the keel running steady in deep, calm waters.

High,

Low,

Good,

Bad,

Calm,

Chaos-

The end result

Is ultimately the same

And I am

Overstimulated

To the point

Of nearing numbness.
