My Inner Voice
Noises and people and places,
Everything, everyone, everywhere,
A myriad of distractions filling all the empty spaces.
Eyes shut, hands clenched in my hair
Pulling and tugging and ripping and tearing
I’m losing myself… she left without a care.
Eyes and their shadows always staring
Closing in all around
Each step cacophonous and blaring.
I will continue to stick my ground.
Drown it all out…
The little voice inside is about to be found,
Then she lets us know with her loudest shout
That she will be heard,
Turning away, towards a scenic route.
