The Blaring Silence

Echoes ricochet

The hollow rings loudly

Everything and Nothing

Too Many Things

It’s effect deafens

Changing what was once warm to cold

Welcoming to Harsh

Lights of blue and red flash all around

Distracting

Intentional

Dread creeps in along with the sound

Heavy footfalls and the wail of a siren

It’s all too much

I retreat within and am consumed

Wrapped in cold arms

I submit

Alone

With nothing but piercing, unrelenting

Silence
