Is there such a thing? I mean could there ever really be pure and utter silence? Have you ever heard silence?
There’s always some form of sound, some kind of noise that is bubbling away in the background. The sound of electrics humming through your house. The sound of the leaves rustling and animals calling out to each other when you’re outside, even the soft whisper of the wind that dances outside your ears.
There is no such thing as silence.
It doesn’t exist.
It’s a social construct that was invented by humans to deceive ourselves into thinking that there was an end to noise.
The world is noisy.
Everything is noisy.
I can’t stop the sounds that run through my head.
I want to scream at them to stop, I want to punch them out. Knock them down.
But no matter what I do, the noises are constant. Gnawing at me, their steady beat pit patting against the side of my skull.
Why won’t they stop!
Why won’t they leave me alone?
I just want them to go away!
