Silence Sounds


The sound of silence sounds off to me
This particular sound for me is the feeling of suddenly waking up
from a deep drug and alcohol induced coma like sleep only to
realize that I'm undoubtedly late for a can't be tardy with no
exceptions, life changing event. Yet midway through this frightening
experience, through frustration, I'm trying to remember what this
can't be avoided and happening now important event even is. Then
instantly through clearity of this sudden situation realization and no
current conclusion, with my sweaty palms and cold wrinkly fingers
gripping my face, I think, (fuck it, I'm all ready to late).
This sound overwhelms me and alerts me that theres choices to be made
One of these choices screams out to me, (panic but be ready to solve).
The second choice seems to be steady with a sorta super natural feeling
it says to me, (be calm and quiet), intertwined with a soft soothing
whisper repeating, (just let go).
This sound overwhelms me and alerts me that theres choices to be made
This particular sound for me is painfully waking up hearing blaring horns,
bells, whistles, sirens, and silent alarms with choice number two from earlier
Convincingly telling me to fall back asleep. Yet luckily with a hint
of choice number one in the background mumbling and repeating, (to solve
is to possibly temporarily experience panic but possibly or at least temporarily
still live).
The sound of silence sounds off to me
