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.

Rat-a-tat-tat,

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.

Alone.
