My mind is a carrousel

Thoughts and ideas go past,

Up and down, or standing still


I try to talk to my friend

But I can’t keep her words straight.

What am I being asked for, and when?


I wish I could be of help

But confusion is running the show

And the thoughts whirl on by


Inevitably it ends

And I let my friend down

I can’t keep track of anything


So I cry in dismay

My thoughts have stopped

Only to twirl around again


I sigh and retreat to my world,

My merry-go-round bubble

Until I reach out and try once more
