Sometimes the world feels so loud.
Everybody is talking,
Nobody has anything good to say.
Heavy words are thrown carelessly
They slice at our skin,
Though they don’t cut as deep anymore.
It’s a verbal assault
With each syllable gaining velocity
I try to protect my ears from the attack as I whisper
Be quiet, be quiet, be quiet, be quiet, please.
Now there is silence,
And the world feels even louder.
