what do you hear?
from this image alone, your mind makes up sounds, your ears being the victim.
the clouds and sun suggest it’s daytime and the trees make you think birds are chirping around somewhere near.
far away in the distance though are sirens, loud, pair that with a blaring monotone horn and it’s almost like nails dragging on a chalkboard — but for you it’s way worse than that. the lights trigger memories you can’t forget, the sounds make your body shake uncontrollably.
this is not what it looks like. there are children screaming now around the corner and the sirens come close too often.
it doesn’t help the police station is right across the street from you, but when silence does finally come, and the sirens subside, you begin to think.
so as the sun sets at the end of the day, it seems fair to say — if you listen hard enough, you are not who you think you are — silence defeats you.
