Stupor Poem…

November 8, 2013

Stupor – definition: 1. to be in a dumbfounded, paralyzed, or blank mental state; 2. a dull, sluggish, unresponsive mental state due to a psychiatric condition or caused by drugs or alcohol.


Today I share a poem that this word inspired in me.

Piercing light through barely open eyelids

Noise assaulting ear drums

Hands grasping head in frustration and fear

Rocking back and forth

Craving solitude and quiet

Manhandled and coerced

Limbs heavy and immobile

Words indecipherable and sharp

Longing for nothingness

Welcoming a black hole of sensory deprivation
