Dear Voices

Been a while now,



Those voices,

They were loud —I could hear them screaming, and yelling, 

and doing everything noisy to let me know they existed.


Yes I heard them🤦,

My mind like a maze changed patterns, and all I could remember was 

“you won't make it”;

My eyes wandered about and watered

Like there was a waterfall in my brain.


I was set to reset after 120 seconds—

Countdown to my second bomb 💣 but,

Gave the closing remark and headed straight to my chair🚶, 

Talking to the voices in my head.


Seating on my seat I could taste deceit in their comfort:

Like I was hiding in the dark and they called me to come forth—

The fourth time I was reminded of how I felt under the spotlight— Glory Shy.
