Loud Noises

I can try to pay attention
to the words you say
but the very loud noises
keep distracting me

I lay on the floor
& listen to the lightning strikes
in the summer rain

on a raft in a river
curiosity resembles my mistakes
I think as I move
I move as I think

what a simple world
to just listen
and wait
I try to pay attention when you speak
but the loud noises keep distracting me.
