Silence screams static into my ears

Every minimal sound

Is a bomb interrupting monotony.

Yearning for interactions with others

Even if they are not my own.


The dull glow of the silent television offers no comfort

The thumping music diminishes-

Not welcome at this time.

Visitors are welcome

But none come or go.


Right now, the only comfort

Comes from my own sanity.

But how much silence can I take?

How much silence can this room hold

Before it breaks?

  1. Can be boring sometimes but a keen look is all it takes to be inspired. When loneliness is seen as boredom it develops wings of suicide. I hope the persona gets many to speak to or knows there are many out there like him or her.
