I can’t hear the words.

I can see pictures -
frozen flashes devoid of color
like flipping pages quickly
in some dark photoalbum.

or like a gif videoclip
repeating endlessly –
an indelible few seconds
continuing to infinity.

mouths are moving
and flesh hits against flesh -

but there’s no sound.

someone pushed the mutebutton
the onlything I hear is wordless echos -
a deafening silence ringing
like an amplified seashell.

were the words really worse
than what I sawandfelt –
so bad that I had to delete them?
or maybe it was alltoomuch and
audio was the easiest part to block.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself... And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." - Paulo Coelho
