Silence sounds like

The feeling of your blood pumping

through your veins after running up

the steps.

Pausing at the top to take a deep breath,

straighten your shirt and

run your fingers through your hair.

You slowly step towards the door,

heart pounding in your chest,

echoing in your ears.


the sound pierces the air.

And now you wait.

Lub-dub. Lub-dub. Lub-dub.

You hold your breath.

10 seconds.

20 seconds.

30 seconds.

1 minute.

The blood is rushing to your face,

your body heating up.

You are in the middle of

a flood only you can hear.

Lub-dub, lub-dub, lub-dub, lub-dub…

You hurriedly turn and leave.
