It’s All In Your Head

our-daily-grateful-post-head-2

My brain is  full of  colours and  patterns  that  no one else  can  see

A host of words bouncing back and  forth  aching to be free.

I open my  mouth  and  words  come out  but they get misunderstood

So I try to explain myself  but  to  angry  ears  it  does  no  good.

 

 

The  magic in  my head, the  colours  and  the  sound

Are  the safest  place  in all my life,  that  I have  so far  found.

So when voices get raised  and  anger begins  to  boil over

Inside  my  head  I  watch the  sights  and  sounds  of  a  Super  Nova

 

Why do  you  never listen, where on earth is  your head

The questions  I  am often asked, they make  me  run  for bed.

Is it  any  wonder I hide inside  my  imagination inside my virtual world

Where rainbows  twirl around me  and  all my  dreams like  banners  are unfurled.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My  inspiration  for  this  poem  came  from  a picture  on Deb’s  blog  Once upon  a hotflush   

do visit  her.

Original image  best  guess on  Google  here

    Hi Willow! Cool poem. You it reminds me of synesthesia – where you can hear colors and see sounds, etc.
