Words have lost their rapier thrust

     They don’t cut through me

Gestures rude are meaningless

         I just ignore them

Violence does not make me flinch

        I am indifferent to it

Loss no longer leaves me wild eyed

         It can’t hurt me further

Death does not break my heart 

For my heart encrusted in pain

            Stopped beating

                   Long ago.
