i hear loud voices
at the back
of my head
reverberating
distant noises
of high frequencies
and deep memories

it's deafening.
so i chose
to let go of my ears
and use my eyes instead.

then i see
demons.
then i feel
nothing.

    Ditto @Oscar_Locke, the simplicity of this piece is fantastic, but I'm seeing an underlying layer of complexity that is astounding. I love the line 'then i see demons/then i feel nothing.' It's very meaningful and could be interpreted in a variety of ways :)
    Also, word choices like 'reverberating' and 'frequencies' are well put to use in this.
    Awesome poem!! Keep 'em coming, Dude! :DDDD

    This strongly reminds me of sleep paralysis. Love the piece's simplicity.
