That dot in the ceiling
When I don’t say a word.
Listen to me,
When I scream in my silences.
Look at me,
even when I turn away.
When I say I don’t need your attention.
When I walk away crying.
Even when I push you off.
Even when I say I don’t want you near.
Read between my lines.
Understand what I don’t say.
Feel me even when I say nothing to you.
My mind is a dangerous and chaotic place.
But you may learn to comprehend it if you try.
Just stop staring at that dot in the ceiling,
Realise that I can’t stop and do nothing.
It drives energetic people crazy – apathy.
Come run away with me.
