Author's Note: Yes, another one of my poems that I've broken into "Chapters." All the same poem; each chapter a continuation of the last.
Closed Off (I)
My head on my desk;
I'm alone in a different world.
Staring out at the people around me,
The noise coalesces with my silence;
leaving me to drown in a
The wall around me is unseen,
but it's there, I sit unnoticed.
Observing all that happens
I see everything;
and I see nothing.
I hear nothing;
and I hear everything.
The visions mixed an blurred;
While the dialogue runs together,
Nothing makes sense, and it matters
to me not.
It all passes as if nothing happened;
my mind records nothing.
