The voices in my head aren’t speaking to me

I think they’re bored and want to play

School and work has got them feeling sane

And they don’t know what to do all day.


The characters of my books aren’t speaking to me

It’s been a long time since I asked them what they want to do

They’re upset I haven’t let them move in a long time

And they’re feeling a little more than blue.


The words of my poems still speak to me

But only barely compared to before

It seems the older I get the less adventures I can have

In my own head without leaving out my front door


Almost everyone in my head has stopped speaking to me

Even though they still occupy my mind.

I’m trying to apologize and make up

So they’ll go on adventures with me one more time


The voices in my head stopped speaking to me.
