Quiet please

Enough with the noise,

The chanting,

Screaming,

Attempts at whispering,

Mumbling beneath

My breath,

Muttering

Again and again and again…

Just shut up.

And now.

Quiet please,

Just

Quiet-

All of you

Voices

In my head.

I want

To sleep,

Or concentrate,

Or focus

On anything

Other than you

For just a while-

Is that really

Too much

To ask?

The anxiety

Is enough

Already,

So just shut up

And give me

A little

Quiet please.

    I thoroughly agree! The last four lines really drove it home (so to speak) in my mind.
