i need an army loaded with q-tips

bored, in school,
I said, “fuck this essay”,
so i’m writing
a poem instead.
What an intricate
way to deal
with
all
the
voices in my head.
This one
cries that, and
that one cries, “This!”
In fact,
it’s only whenever you’re
next
to
me
that these voices
don’t persist.
Alone, i hear your voice,
your favourite
(albeit obscure) songs.
I see your face
in the clouds of high noon,
all night long
i lie and yearn for you.
The voices
push and tug at
the frayed edge
of
my
fractured mind.
And for all that
i’ve resisted,
i fear temptation’s transition to
fate.
You held my head
above the water
for so long i’m not
sure i can do
this for
myself
anymore.
