How to shut the noise out

It is the silence that breaks the noise of the room.

It was far too noisy for her liking. She wanted it to be quiet. She wanted everything to just shut up. She’s tried almost everything to shut the noise out. She tried telling them calmly to shut it, she tried shaking them to show them her frustration, she damn near almost punched one of them to just shut them up. She tried almost everything to shut the noise out.

Almost.

She now looks at the various instruments that can help her shut the noise out once and for all. All the hurtful words, the painful scenes, all of it. She can shut it out. And she is about to do it, she is. But she is just waiting for the right time. She still had to say goodbye to those people who aren’t part of the noise right? But she had to do it discreetly. Saying “I love you” and hugging them randomly. That is the best way to say goodbye discreetly.

And now she is here once more, staring at the various instruments that will shut it all out. Shut out the noise. The voices and images that she knows full well she can never escape from.

She will go to sleep tonight. Noise free.

      1. It encompasses a multi level/spectrum wow. I understand voices. I actually write about them the other day. I wish I could turn them off and the only way I know that I can is a way that would have a permanently devastating conclusion. I never would, but I think about it. Not that I would act on it. It seems I need to embrace them and not loathe them so much – particularly the voice of reason;)

        I suppose my wow is this is an awesomely powerful piece and I really like it.
