The cacophony of silence

The deafening cacophony gets louder
Each passing moment brings the inevitable closer
It started as a whisper
Barely noticeable
Easy to miss
It was always there but never pondered upon
A constant reminder
The noise started getting louder
Till it reached a crescendo
Couldn’t hear anything anymore
Surrounded by it
Drowning, willingly so
And then as suddenly as it had arrived
It was gone
And silence was all around
Not a hush
Air heavy with the unsaid
I wonder now
What’s worse
The deafening crescendo
Or the chilling silence

Nice. Tres elegante. So many ways to describe but for me. My recent experience says... A person's reality can consume them while they remain unaware. And once they surface they are still in peril yet can finally see the light @ the end of the tunnel. And much work must be done to arrive where you wish you were.
