The Noise In My Head



If only the way I sound inside my head

Would sound as good

Outside of my head.

At least,

For the most part,

I know when to share that noise,

And when to keep it quiet.



I am grateful that the world does not put a microphone in front of me.

But not as grateful as the world is.

    We all sound differently to our ears than to our mind, MBC.

  2. That’s a bit of a phenomena. We never like the sound our our own voice. I’m sure yours is lovely!

  3. You do have a microphone in front of you — your blog. πŸ™‚ And we are grateful when you speak into it.

  4. Oh gawd, I’m still having trouble with when to let it out. Sometimes foot-in-mouth disease plagues me. πŸ˜‰

    right there with you πŸ™‚

    I think you’ve lots of music inside your, inside out, you’ll always sound good.

    Excellent observations…I’m still learning to be quite at the right moment…with great improvement I must say. Love your drawing as always.

  8. I hear you singing “Hound Dog.”

    The noise in your head translates beautifully on the pages of your blog. Thank-you!

    I love your punch line, and relate all too well to your entire post, Colleen.

  11. Bravo. You nailed this one. Few people like the sound of their own voice. Ah, but the wisdom to know when to speak and when to refrain, that is the secret to life.

  12. The first part, I think it is only because the other won’t get it, that you wouldn’t say it aloud πŸ™‚
    The last statement made me smile πŸ™‚ I am glad too there is no microphone in front of me – what if I become fearless and say it all?!!

    You made me laugh! Every now and then I recall something I’ve said out loud and wish I hadn’t. Especially when I was younger and hadn’t acquired the filters I hope I know to use today! *cringe*

    yes, and the world is lucky about my almost blurts as well )

  15. I’m sure you sing like a bird…well, in the shower anyway.

    • Interesting enough…..I “DO” believe I sing quite well in the shower. Amazingly so to be honest. (I’m laughing while I write this because it’s the God’s honest truth!)
