Tinnitus

By LOURENZ OROC BALIBER

How can silence be so loud?
The dissonance of my thoughts keep haunting me. Trying to say something hidden within me. Trying to say something sweet.

How can silence be so loud?
Despair and the hollowness of my soul is breaking me. Trying to say something hidden within me. Trying to destroy everything that I see.

How can silence be so loud?
Endless waves of discomfort in my deepest slumber and the idleness of my mind. Trying to say something hidden within me. Trying to ask for reassurance.

How can silence be so powerful?
The flames within me has cooled down leaving flints in my soul making me stronger and weak at the same time. Trying to say something hidden within us. Trying to find acceptance.
