Overload

Overload 

 Image from Street art utopia

BRAIN FULL !
READY TO BLOW !
Music piped into the air 
digital words everywhere 
 images bombarding my visual field 
emotions raw ,open revealed, 
woes building up and up 
irrationality bubbling 
about to erupt! 
Mentally craving the world to stop 
NOT to think!  NOT to stress !
NOT to put my core under duress! 
Just to block out all the noise
Reboot my brain and regain my poise, 
I take ten and go completely blank
To totally refresh my think tank ! 

Submitted for :dVerse Poets Openlink Night where poets create and share

  1. Ooo...sounds like you need some quiet time. I usually mute the TV and out my headphones on and listen to relaxing music. It works for me. Sometimes it can all just get to be too much.
    Nicely said!

  3. ha...sometimes it would be really cool if we could reboot our brain by just pressing a button....music kinda does this for me...or a walk on the seashore or in the woods..

  15. Wonderful. Man, can I ever relate to this poem!

  16. Yes, too much info, too connected, too much useless thinking.
    Completely agree, sense of oppression when reading it..
    Losing human touch??
