So quiet in there;
Wondering where all the loud thoughts disappeared to;
Can’t seem to find a single stray thought to hold on to;
As if they are hiding away from me;
Afraid of what I’d do to them;
The silence is deafening;
Even with music in my ears;
It feels like it’s playing into a vacuum;
Hitting the walls of the brain;
And bouncing right back to me;
But there are a lot to think about!
Why, did my mind go on break without telling me?
How is that even possible?
Hello, are you there?
Don’t bail on me right now;
I have time now to write;
But you are not giving me anything;
The harder I search;
The farther the ideas flee away;
I know you’re there;
I just can’t touch you right now;
Maybe I should just leave you alone;
And wait till you are ready to come out;
But did you hear me say,
I have time right now? Smh;
Don’t come plaguing me;
When I’m busy with chores;
Or on an errand;
Away from the keyboard;
But we both know;
That’s exactly what you’d do.
I’ve tried all the tricks but to no avail;
I guess you know me very well, huh? Read a little, laid down for sometime;
Closed my eyes for a while;
Listened to all tunes I know you like;
But still no access;
I’ll leave you alone…for now;
I know; I am too;
But I hope by the time you resume;
You’ll have juicy ideas for me;
I’ll starve you with no reads;
Like you’re starving me with no ideas;
You don’t like the sound of that, huh?
Tell me about it.
I guess I’ve to do with;
The news, K-drama;
And an episode or two;
Of the TV series in queue tonight;
And call it a wrap.
Can’t wait to hear from you tomorrow;
If God wills it;
