The cacophony of nothing,
Peace ringing in my ears,
A huge blast of emptiness,
One big silent cheer!

There’s nothing to listen to,
No one’s voice to hear.
The world I know has gone
All the sound has disappeared.

Suddenly I think again,
And sit back and relax.
The room around might look the same,
But my ears have taken a step back.

If peacefulness is bliss
Then noise is atrocious
I have stepped out of an abyss
Where the sound is ferocious.

Inhale, out, breathe again
Sanity once again my friend.
The smile returns, I can silently sing.
That is, until I hear the bloody phone ring.
