Poem: Numb

I enter the parking lot

I sigh with dread

I slowly find the energy to go on

I open the door and start the walk


I numb my mind along the way

I wonder how long this will last

I dream of something better

I wonder what I've become


I leave the parking lot

I sigh with relief

I try to denumb my mind

I struggle to not let this define me

I'm left wondering where this parking lot is... work, hospital, school? Very intriguing.
