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.
