"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." ~E.L. Doctorow

My quiet mind,
Well, it used to be full
With thoughts of

My idle hands,
Well, they used to fit
Just perfect with

I guess my mind
Got too loud
With all those silly
Thoughts of you.

I guess my hands
Lost their grip
Trying to hold on
To your fingertips

My quiet mind,
Now too hushed.
My idle hands,
Now too stationary

Without you.

I would rather you hate me for all that I am then love me for something I'm not.
