"When I have fears that I may cease to be..." - John Keats

When I think about
That moment
I reopen a numbness.
When I recognize
Those emotions,
I reopen a wound.
When I realize
I’m bleeding,
I reopen a bottle
Full of pills
To reopen
The numbness.

This isn't written from basis on my own personal action, but on the idea of being fine, then reopening an old sensitivity, and struggling to overcome it.
