It’s never not hard

It’s never

Not hard

To live

Inside my head,

Yet

I find myself

There

Far too often.

The competing voices,

And ideas,

And fears,

And desires,

And resentments,

And the love-

For my daughters especially-

All vying

For my attention

At the same time-

All of them winning,

All of them losing.

It’s a very loud

And crowded

Space

Between my ears,

Yet

My heart

Is barely

A foot away,

And so very lonely.
