Schizophrenia or Sprint?

Schizophrenia or Sprint?

Vibrations-soft every few minutes
I try to ignore it-but it keeps pounding in my head

The voices whisper in my ear
Through the ear canal
Past the eardrum
Up to the relative part of my brain
Where understanding resides
Arriving disarrayed and jumbled
I attempt to sort out their meanings

Disembodied voices swirling around me
Shouting, whispering, angry
They rise to a crescendo-the ultimate finale
Then they stop-peace for a little while

I pray to the god of cellular communications
Thy name be Sprint
It is no use-he demands my attention, my acknowledgment
I give it

I pray to the god of mental illness
Thy name be Schizophrenia
It does no good-he demands my dependence, my devotion to meds and therapy
I am in its grip

I pray to the god of love
Thy name I have long since forgotten
He shuts me out, ignores me
Leaves me drowning in a sea of noise......
