The Dull Voice


There it is again

Nagging at my mind


The thought reverberates

Like the hands of time


Can't seem to find

That peace of mind


Trapping myself

In the cage of doubt

Where happiness

Is something I can't find


It echos in my skull

A voice that sounds so dull


But it's a voice that gives me clarity

And makes me think with reason

and prosperity


I think something did happen

And I saw it

with my own eyes


Somebody doing someone wrong

Just to pass some time


There it was on my back porch the other day

It didn't say hi

When it saw my face


It peered through the glass

So thin

So frail


Right where my baby was sleeping

In her crib

Balled up like a snail


It peered over her and met my eyes

I was ready to kill that mother fucker

till it died


But instead i opened the door and said

"Hey,

Can i help you?"


It looked startled said

"Ahhh.. mosquitos"

And pointed up to the roof


Not knowing what to do i knodded

And said

"Okay."


It just turned

Hopped over the porch fence

And walked away


Maybe it was mosquitos

Or maybe a harmless gaze


Or maybe it will be someone else's baby

In a different room

On a different day
