There’s nothing like lying on my big bed
Listening to the cat breathe loudly nearby
Letting my thoughts sprint like greyhounds
While idly scratching that itchy spot on my ankle

I have a million questions but no answers
I wish I could claw at my brain like I reach out to my foot!

Why does my skin suddenly feel like a colony of ants is marching over it?

How come we make the same mistakes over and over
Even if we realize at the time that it is stupid?

When can I hear someone’s soft whisper in my ear again?
How much longer do I need to seek to find myself?
To whom should I pray to make this bad luck end?
Will tomorrow be any better, even just a little bit?

…Would it make a difference if I knew?
The ankle is still itchy…
