Eyes tightly shut
Hands cupping ears
Trying to escape the deafening shrill of a thousand hyenas

How long has it been like this?

Long enough for aching arms to finally let go
For the eyes to open
To the deathly sound, of silence....

Hi all, thanks for reading...

Apologies for being somewhat depressing, I can be the complete opposite. But, life is what it is, sometimes up, sometimes down....and other shades of gray.

Wish everyone love, peace and serenity, when they most need it. sad flower
balloons Writing is a cathartic release.... write if you will, write if you must... never worry about other people's perception... the soul always has a rhythm it follows and a journey it will experience in its lifetime.... joy

Powerful images you are projecting here... ;) Excellent write!
