it’s hard to focus

it’s hard to focus

 

words jumble together

black swirls flying off the page

spinning about my mind

flickering about like a black and white movie

 

the music coming from the corner of the room stops

the needle rises

but the constant hum of spinning static

drowns out my thoughts

 

car horns sound in the not so distant streets

brakes screech to a halt

the thump of too loud rap music beats inside my head

worse than the sound of a ticking clock in a silent room

 

trapped in this place we have created

nothing is precious

nothing is breathtaking

the beauty in the world

disappeared
