Compromised Calm

My mind is uncompromising in it’s busy distraction

it remembers the irrelevant nothings, inane dribble

but forgets crucial points, names and important dates

When I need to respond quickly it’s packed up and gone on holiday

As I try to sleep I suddenly think of that smart retort,

then it gets busy regurgitating every fine detail of my day

persisting so loudly it wont let me sleep ….


What can I do to keep this noisy disturbing companion

quiet in order to think? How do I distract it, train it

or turn it off … or do I submit to it’s merciless chatter

thinking I’m the only one going insane, oh it’s such a pain!

Tangled in knots, I think I forgot how to calm it right down

as it tangos away tapping on my brain my mind is never still!

Meditation is the real solution, taming my mind will be a real thrill

DP: Uncompromising – this is where I had lunch today with Mum and her friends!

    1. go to the actual prompt page and right below each prompt, just before all the posts, where it says 223 posts is a blue link which says ‘Instructions’ … open that, copy it and then paste that onto your response … it automatically links your post to their page. Good luck, you will get there.
