(Out of) Focus

A thousand voices clamor in my head
Screaming for attention
Building me up
Tearing me down
Crowding me out of my own space
Demanding my attention
Disrupting concentration

A thousand villains in my brain
Distracting my focus
Distorting my center
Knocking me around

I beg for silence but it never comes
To make some sense of
All this confusion

I yearn for solace but it eludes me
When we are apart
There's too much noise

I ache for beauty but it only finds me
When we are together
The alarm bells cease

A thousand voices fill my head
Begging to be understood
You build me up
You tear me down
Filling every corner of my space
Demanding my attention
Disrupting concentration

A thousand vultures clawing at my brain
Distracting my focus
Distorting my center
Dragging me around

I beg for silence but the shouting rises
I yearn for solace but the chaos grows
When we are apart when we are together
Your nightmares fill my mind
