Song (Poem)

Trying to mute the voices in my head with the headphones,

I rather listen to music then my own voice,

Different types of music plays through my headphones,

I’m trying to find the perfect song to silent my own voice,

The volume goes up through my headphones.


The headphones plays my favorite song,

I try to sing the song,

There’s a desperation to be saved with the song,

I feel that I need the song,

I need to shut down my own voice by singing the song.


The lyrics take my mind somewhere else,

It sometimes takes me away from the dark place that my own voice takes me,

I want to be somewhere else,

I don’t want to go where my own negative voice takes me,

So I do my best to get into the song so I can go somewhere else.
