The numbness is annoying
he’s sinking in that
muted area where
words cannot
intrude anymore.

He’s cold in summer
when the world
shines extra
warmth and
he doesn’t thaw.

Secretly he anticipates
a day as beautiful
as a dead clock
and a lifeline
without deadlines.
Some floral love
lace bordered 
towelettes accompany 
his future that resembles 
the past where he’s
not welcome again.


I chose “Jaded” for the alphabet J for A to Z Challenge.

Have a lovely weekend! What is your most favorite word with J?
