too loud, too bright

January 31, 2019


the quietest of noises are too loud for me
for instance the bouncing of one's knee

everything has become too bright
like the radiance of the living room lights

the world is too loud
i can no longer handle the sound

the white noises of the people on tv
compared to the slow dripping of the iv

the world is too bright
i can no long remember what used to be right

the glowing of the brilliant sun 
is no longer providing fun

in the end my mind started to overload
the electricity made my brain explode

what is it that i am becoming?
a victim that is begun succumbing
Author's Note:
true story. i don't know how else to put it into words. 
nonetheless, i'm trying my best right now.
