The Echoes Take Hold [new] - Poem by Melanie Walendowsky Baker

To organise my thoughts
to make sense of it all;
to know how I feel
and not hit a brick wall.

The questions are different,
the answers the same.
They vary at will
and then I hear your name.

It thuds and resounds
gently in my head.
It's just always there
long after I'm in bed.

The echoes take hold
and to them I resign.
Until I am me again
in just a short time.
