    Outer Space.

    If someone is talking to me, or if I am in class and my teacher is doing a boring lecture, I will often daydream, or space out. Especially if the conversation just makes no sense, my eyes will wander off elsewhere.

    Say No More, Please!

    "Say no more, please!"... That's what I keep on telling to myself when I happened to be with an ego-centric person... So annoying to be with a person who loves to talk much about himself/herself... He/She don't even give me a chance to talk or respond to whatever he or she's...

    Boredom

    I have a friend who likes to talk about herself. (blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.) I find myself staring into space, working my mind to something else. And there, I'm nodding my head in her babble, saying : "oh's", 'really?', 'yeah', 'hmmm'. In time she notices it. And there, I look...

    The Bear

    Like a bear Out into the air I stare. A conversation should Say everything it would, To any hearer that could. Boredom settles in, Playing on the mind worse than gin, A grimace never a grin! Talk of things interesting, Talk never depressing, Speak kindly and stressing.
