Peace of Mind

by Mary Hannah

My mind is a piece,
A fragment of my body
Where the speech will never cease.
This speech, will never cease.
I close my mind but
Cannot block my mind. It
Is a constant form of
Torture within me.
My mind is a piece,
A song for you
Where music does not cease.
This music, will not cease.
But this is a joy of mine
To listen and to hear
The sounds so sweet
To my ear, but only for me.
No-one else can
Hear the piece of my mind
