Can you hear it.....


What is the sound of love dying?is it the midnight fights that keep wake the neighbors and keep them whispering amongst themselves? The "you never"'s and broken dishes? The sound of tires squeeling in the drive and sobbing in the yard?

Or...

is love dying a much softer, more innocent sound?


Is the sound of love dying in the measured breaths of feigned sleep when he finally comes home and up the stairs at 4 5 6am. Is it in the sullen silence at the dinner table. Is it in the sound of broken dreams, promises, lives?

The sound of love dying is when all the sounds around you are no longer the same as before. You know they are there but you cannot hear them, you can no longer feel them, you can no longer interpret them, as your soul is trapped in a muffled foggy cage of numbness.

Oh.. I have some fresh things to add to this:

It's the sound of everything you don't want to hear, and nothing that you do want to hear.

It's the suddenly noticable sound of your own efforts to swallow due to the lump in your throat that won't seem to go away

It's the sound of your eyelash rubbing against a tear-soaked spot on your pillow

It's the sound of your mind echoing and replaying all the good things you've heard and battling them against all the bad things you can't believe you've heard...it's the sound of confusion.

It's the sound of skin against skin, skin against the sheets, your matress squeaking, and fingernails against skin, as you scratch, itch, rub, adjust, roll over, fluff your pillow, toss and turn while trying to get to sleep.

It's the sound of your keyboard rattling at late hours because you can't sleep, so you decided to get up and add to a blog.
