Voices - Poem by Anuj Tikku

The sleepless nights they begin to bite
As I hear voices of my fathers plight
As he shouts and shrieks for his life
The voices in my head as I lie down in bed

The voices of the past
Come to me thick and fast
I hear them just the same
These voices of blame

My cup is full of voices
Of time gone by of past choices
The voice of my mother whispering to me
The voices that said just let things be

the voices of women in my life
the voices of my weeping ex wife
voices that pleaded me not go
voices that cried out for me
the voices that say just let things be

    Genuine and confessional in tone! I feel you are unwinding all your nerves here. But I still ask you, Are you really so haunted by such an alarming level of voices sir? (Report) Reply
