The world seems more boring now
I see a TV
And a computer
And a windmill
But I fail to see the little flower blowing in the wind trapped between its blades

For awhile I thought the problem was a lack of ice
Maybe without the chill my drinks just canít taste the same anymore

Then I thought maybe itís my new apartment
But alas the world changed just as slowly before I was here

You have slowed down my brain
I no longer tremble at the thought of going out in a crowd
Or being around children
But at what cost?

You try to teach me faces
But I donít care anymore
My mind is just too slow and impotent
To process even a ďproudĒ or ďconfidentĒ smile

Much like intelligence must limit other areas of the mind
You have taken away my fear and replaced it with indifference
And a kind of empty unhappiness I have never known before

Even this poem bores me to tears
And lacks the kind of brilliant and unique imagery I used to create
And I canít even cry anymore

by claudita

Antidepressants.
At first I thought it may be about someone who was in a wheelchair who had an accident but i have heard depressed people describe themselves as feeling paralysed.

anti-psychosis
Deeply sad.I have seen this in people who have to take antidepressants or anti-psychotic medications. Some medications work better than others and have fewer side effects that cause what you speak of here. Really good poem.
