Voices inside my head

Voices inside my head

They cloud my mind

Keeping me up at night—they call my name

A little here, a little there

I must be crazy

I want to shut them out

I want to run away

But what if I miss something important?

Something like a message…

An answer to my millions of unanswered questions

It’s all in my head, I say

Go to bed darling

Tomorrow is a new day

But when I wake they are still there

I put up walls, but they tear them them down

Their words are piercing


Sometimes they go on vacation

And then I feel alone

Come back, I whisper

It’s all in my head
