Alone again, yet crowded

No one here, but my thoughts

Thinking through them thoroughly

My brain, it aches with work

Why when I am alone

Do they come in throngs

They taunt, tease and titillate me

Until I have come undone

When my mind has had enough

My body sighs with strain

My eyes close, fists clench

I almost lose my name

Someone enters the room

It’s like it never happened

It gets swept to the side

In an instant, unexpectedly

My thoughts hide amongst shadows

There they wait for solitude

Then they consume my existence

I’ll keep fighting with fortitude
