When Alone

It’s quiet, I’m alone

But not in my head

Din of conversation

All in the first person

Ambient noise

Catching random phrases

Mention my failures

Indirect persuasion

I scream aloud

My self talk railing

I love this about me

It takes so much energy

It’s a physical fight

Body punches

Kidney shots

No rules MMA

I’m tired

Forced to listen

Kicked when down

I sleep

In restless dreams

distant memories

My first kiss and backgammon

Feeling that rush of abandon

Interrupted by my alarm clock

My day starts again

Hands wrapped

Neck loose

For a moment I know I can win

Stay sharp eyes open

Strong heart can’t lose

In this traders pit
