This rattling in my head,
Grows louder
Until the din fills my space with its own.
And I break down before you.
The green tears rolling down my cheek.
Salt bites bitter into my lip
But I can't hear the pain
For the concise din
Reckons with its strength,
Becoming whole and one.
Drowning out the passing day.
Numbing me into fear.
Numbing me into nothing.
