Loony


Pit pat
Tick-tick
Rattle rattle
Clatter
Thunder
Boom
Screech
Slam
All the voices in my head

Laughing
Giggling
Winking
Pounding
Banging
Never stopping

Crazy
Insane
Loony

I need a cup of tea?

Questions
Clutter

Peanut butter?
Mustard?

Padded walls
Voices
Voices
Never a legit answer

Singing
Singing
Joyful tunes
Almost time for happy pills

Bouncing
Bouncing
Off the walls
Smiling Thursday
The day I am allowed to be in charge

Padded walls
Good medication
Invisible friends
What could be better?

All alone
Yet so many around

Therapy
Therapy
Cleansing
Healing
Super fun
Come and visit me in the loony bin

Presents
Presents
Please do bring
I could use some brand new crayons

And I promise
Promise
For real this time

I won’t eat the entire box

Shhh…I lied

I had my fingers crossed…

  1. You know I started out smiling, but when I realized what the context/theme the poem was based on I stopped. It was a good poem though NP.
