My Mind and Me

Will you keep quiet for a while?

I am thinking.

Will you keep quiet for a while?

I want to use you

But it’s you

Constantly speaking to each other

While I sit here containing you.

Too many chaos, too many distractions

The peace doesn’t last

Oh, ok. When I sleep?

You will keep quiet?

But, I do and you don’t.

Promise me, promise me

That you will be at peace, when I do.

Oh! Now you’re laughing, laughing at me

Will you keep quiet, just for a while?

I want to think about you and me.
