The craving for feeling
The darkness creeps in,
A heavy weight upon my soul,
Emotions once strong,
Now reduced to a hollow hole

But why? What is this?
A freezing chill, a void,
A numbing emptiness,
That leaves me so devoid

Into my skin, my fear further seeps
A terror unforeseen,
A cold - no, freezing - chill, quickly creeps
The worst nightmare I've ever dreamed

I beg for a spark - a flicker - of anything
A taste of emotion,
Even just something I found meandering
The numbness is so cold and potent

For anything is better,
Than this cold, deadened core,
A shock, a pain, a shiver,
Anything would do, anything I felt before
