Frustrating Voices

I get so frustrated with the voices in my head 
They seem to tell stories when I'm ready for bed 
They sound so amazing I should write this all down 
But as soon as I locate a pen I don't hear a sound 
Tell me the story repeat it again 
I'll write it on paper and share with my friends 
I try to remember but to no avail 
Papers get crumbled because memory fails 
Frustration seeps in I almost give up 
The voices are asleep so I'm just out of luck 
But then I remember just one little line 
The rest I just wing it to make the poem rhyme

    The lament of the lyrical soul, with a cashed out bong and an empty bowl...! I feel the pain, but like u we still roll!..Keep the good vibe and an accurate toll. -Sample
