I Cannot Follow the Stories

You speak in haste and voices change tracks without warning

My ears are strained while listening to your stories

Before my mind can examine, they get entangled with a new theme

It irks me that I cannot listen to you in leisure

Go away- travel some more, gather some more stories; carry some patience next time

As if your tongue is misdirected by the misdirected feet

Do you mind what you carry with you?

Check them once in a while

There may be some unscrupulous hands piling up their own worries

Enough of sweet talks; you wasted my time, my precious siesta

Eyes can be foolish too, mostly, the heart is a useless fellow

Will drive you crazy; remember to follow the right directions this time
