In My Head

The voice in my head
It keeps yelling for relief
From the pain I feel inside of me
A thought
That remedy can be sought from anywhere
And not found anywhere
No matter the effort given
But I'm too tired to give enough effort anyway
Sleep only takes away the ache so long
Substance brings a temporary numbness
But the feelings can't be shaken
Though I shake and shake for fear of invasion
Of thoughts of fleas or more horrifying things
If I could just dig a hole deep enough to cover up my brain
And to fill the holes of my ears once all thoughts have escaped
Maybe safety would come from the innocence of hearing nothing 
Then maybe I could be something
That I like hearing about
That I like being a part of 
In my head
