numb.

After awhile it all fades away.
The feeling of constantly
Trying to be happy
To be motivated 
To be enough.

After awhile it becomes normal.
The disappointment
The failure 
The same thing with no change day-
After day-
After day.

It becomes so normal its just-
Gone
You don't feel it anymore.
You're.
Numb.

And at first its amazing.
No more pain.
No more suffering.
But-
It's only amazing until its not.

When you want to feel.
When you need to feel.
When you crave to feel.
