Young Enough to be Numb
by Nyx Sange
Age Group: Adult
I can still remember everything we had together.
I would come over and visit you.
In that tiny house, just big enough for you.
We came over every chance we had
After you lost her.
I made you feel loved.
She made you feel comfortable.
He gave you happy memories.
We all gave you life.
I saw you in the hospital bed.
Something was wrong with you
I could tell it easily, but I shrugged it off.
Somehow, I knew you would be okay.
I expected you to get out soon.
Mom breaks down crying.
She tells me you're gone and I don't believe her
I'm the only one who keeps a smile.
I didn't believe you were gone.
I didn't feel you die.
Why was I so numb, trying to believe that?
I didn't cry at your wake.
I just hoped you would..
I didn't weep at your funeral.
I thought I would see you soon.
I can still remember my voice as I went up there
Reading a letter from my cousin.
Straight and heartless, as if I didn't care.
How could I have forgotten everything we went through.
Now I may never see you again,
Not even in death.
But if you could still hear me, you would hear my tears.
You would hear me weep for being so numb.
I miss you terribly. I regret being that way.
I want to return so you would be buried with my tears.
But all you can do now is watch me cry
For being a heartless granddaughter.
For being numb to the pain.
But know that I feel the pain now,
And its blow is a lot harder.
I want to see you again
Just so you can feel my tears.
Author's Notes: For my late grandfather. I was 8 when he died.
