Awkward Girl.

On some days, the world around me is filled with sound –
obnoxious sounds of barking dogs and strangers.
Not tonight.
They are minutia compared to the clamor of my thoughts.
Right now,
only the breezy hum of my laptop rings into the air
while I beat out words onto this keyboard to keep it company
and forget the day.

There are days when I have to shove plugs into my ears
to drown it all out
and there are times when I wish I could wash out anything in life
in the same manner.

Family, and friends;
romantic interests
there is no off-switch for those.
A laptop is so much simpler,
more maneuverable,
and sometimes it keeps better company than all of them.
