All numb

All frozen

Just a part of me remains

“Still, poised and balanced” to the eye

Who knows how deep it runs

But the one who cares to scratch the surface

And the one who dares to dive right in

For the one who stands safe at the edge

Will never know what goes on within

And he sees just the part of me that remains

Doesn’t know all that’s numb,

All that’s frozen.
