Music To My Ears: A Dichotomy of Silence & Noise

11465275393_ac3a23a8df_z

Silence
:
Under the guise of day
it takes a back seat.
Under the guise of night it comes to light.
It secretly never leaves you, yearns for your embrace.
It’s a place of peace, yet an extreme activity for the soul.
In this world today its true essence is rare, short;
a powerful shock to the system
that can bring in a fresh perspective or an ambiguous sadness.

What do you do with sadness?

NOISE:
NEVER STOPS, SO PREVALENT, ALWAYS IN YOUR FACE.
SO ABSTRACT, SO DIRECT.  OVERLOAD.  UNDERLOAD.
PREFERENCES: IT IS SOME FOR OTHERS AND NOT FOR OTHERS.
SOFT, STRONG, SCREECHING.  HALT, THEN GO.
BANGING, ABRASIVE, INVITING LOVE.  GO THEN HALT.

ALL AROUND US, SOMETIMES US.
