The voices in my head spake thus:
"Pray heed a word from all of us
should what we prate to you make sense
as host we deem you somewhat dense

'Tis folly to believe we're real
to banish us would be ideal
we're products of your fantasy,
your own authentic fallacy

We're sexless; neither gents nor dames
pray brand us not with human names.
as playmates we have little worth
we're in your head, not human-birthed

Engage us not in dialogue
stick to one-sided monologue
our sole aim is to multiply
we're occupied, hence no reply

We find you're too inquisitive
and may we say insensitive
to eavesdrop, as you are inclined
(pardon the pun) where you've no mind

And now, dear host, we beg of thee
for some degree of privacy
scant your right to our domain
seek elsewhere to be entertained."

    Your debut poem is fantastic my friend. I hope you don't mind me reviewing your poems go straight up. The rhyming scheme you used was wonderfully penned throughout which makes this such a sparkling read.

    We'd go mad if we didn't listen to those voices sometimes, this is so good, reminds me of 'the numbskulls', lovely writing is always appreciated. I'm going through yours slowly, I don't like rushing a good thing. Take care, Richard

    Hehe Yes ignoarmus schitzofarmus, very interesting version of the voices. We have a great girl out here that has the voices of the dead after being on heavy drugs....her brother also has schitzo and can't handle it. She is famous in Australia for accurate words from the departed. So is schitzo a sickness if it makes no sense? love your verse babe, xo, Don

    You commented nicely on one of my poems so I found you here and am enchanted . I read all of your poems. I hope you have not been disappointed and quit writing. some of the best I've seen for awhile Please don't get discouraged. It takes a while to catch on. I noticed that you answered some of your comments on your own poem without going to the commenters poems. i know that is the way we do it on some sites, bu not here. Love, Joyce
