numbed

I try to go about my daily routine,

but it is all a blur,

I can’t smile,

I can’t protect myself against the fear that holds me so tightly in its grip.

I feel like crying,

but the tears remain firmly in my eyes,

refusing to burst forth.

I am scared,

utterly terrified,

my soul is filled with dought and confusion,

my eyes sting,

but not a single tear,

i am numbed.

my soul and heart,

are filled with the tears that will not come,

over the horrfic death of this pure soul,

Leiby Kletzky,a’h.

    Nechama, this is a beautiful piece-you expressed what many of us are feeling so well!
    Yes, it’s so sad, we don’t know how to react at first…and everyone’s emotions are bursting from this story.
