The noise was too much. I frantically search finding a lady bug crawling on the lamp shade. The clocks tick so loudly I remove the batteries. I turn down the heat because the ignition drills into my brain with the noise.
The sound of carbonation is too loud. The ice crashes against the side of my glass. I can hear myself swallow so I no longer drink.
Outside my windows tree branches with ice crack and the birds songs pounds into my head.
Ear plugs do not stop the noise. I wrap my head to block the sounds and lay under pillows to stop the NOISE.
No use. No use.
SOUND still finds me. There is no quiet place for me.
I push a thin blade into my ear hoping I will find silence.
