Silence would be balm to my ears.
My deepest wish – to achieve it.
Infernal internal noise appears,
blots out music, can’t receive it.
For ever more I long for quiet.
Will this buzzing never leave me?
The radio is on all night
to drown the howl, relieve it.
Suffering rubbish, I recite
“eternally I long for quiet.”
Do I not deserve reprieve?
Silence please – my need, my right,
noise politely asked to leave,
but no, the roaring just sits tight’
All day long I yearn for quiet.
Tinnitus, a dreadful disease
awful affliction, I indite
you for the murder of my life.
I would die for a bit of quiet,
at last encounter too much quiet.
