The noise within

rises above the silence

Shattering the peace

I so painstakingly created

To deal…

Or keep at bay

this inner turmoil

that has raised its head

Now awakened.


I do not like

this unwelcome roar

unhinged from the depths within.

I do not like

this silence outside

unshackling the voices within.

Making it hard to ignore

this silence.



Drowned in the chatter of life.

Stifled under myriad sounds.

Unheard in the busy-ness before.
