    Listen.
    Be quiet...
    Would you listen ~ please

    I need to hear
    the sound of
    ~ C L E A R ~

    Shhhhh.

    Talkative noises
    that occupy
    dead space
    ...dead weight
    ...dead wrong

    quit feeding
    me lies
    directing my sway

    If you are constantly
    speaking
    ~when
    can you really
    hear ... me ...
    focus on the thoughts
    that I said yesterday ~


    Shhhhhh.

    I can't think straight
    my mind is
    clouded with
    voices
    that roam the
    recesses --
    crashing
    ideas, feelings, and
    sensory nerve
    endings
    ...blending
    convolution with
    misrepresentations
    that get so loud
    I can't hear my
    own voice telling
    me to think things
    through

    Fuzzy logic
    phucks things up
    mucks insides up
    gray matter
    garbledy - goop
    that won't rinse
    free ~

    Shhhhhh.

    I said,

    Damnit!! ...

    Stop talking --


    Lisen.
    Be quiet.
    Would you listen ~ please

    thanks for saying it, babygurl...

    too many people talking 'bout nothing...interrupting my thought process.

    nice flow.

    reminds me of this anonymous flow i once read, that started:

    "listen

    if i ask you to listen
    and you start giving advice
    you've trampled all over my feelings..."


    FEELING THIS.
