Head Full Of Wasps

Head Full Of Wasps

A head full of wasps,
incessantly buzzing under my skin,
Each wasp a thought a feeling,
A notion eardrums filtered in.

My heads a boiling hive of wasps,
a honeycombed place of reaction.
Do I act on every impulse,
allow fabrications to gain false traction?

Do I put my faith in lies,

when all untruths be told?
Will I alienate my closest,
until I sit alone and old?

Or do I take up arms and fight,
standing fast against deceits I find,
or do I take up arms and fight,
the voices in my mind.
