    I Numb Myself

    Not with drugs or alcohol. But I put up this wall. It protects me subconsciously/consciously. It closes me off and prevents me from feeling emotion(especially sadness). It can last any where from a few seconds to a few weeks or more. Depending on what type of heartbreak I'm going...

    Not Always A Happy Ending
