White Noise

Turned up too Loud

Deafens, this white noise

Not hiss but roar

Steals all poise

Beg for less, get more


Torrent blocks all sound

Too much, this pain

Hammers the soul into the ground

Relentless, this acid rain


Turned up too loud

Need to dial it down

Pinned β€˜neath this heavy cloud

In this white noise, I drown


sad poetry

    That is powerful, Harmony! It reminds me of how my sister describes her migraines. I hope your patches of relief become longer and longer. Great poem! Yvette M Calleiro :-)
