Too Loud

July 20, 2019

 

There are days

Where the sound

Is so, so aggravating

That I have 

An aggressive response

To it.

A sound,

Can send an impact

Throughout my entire body

That causes a shock

Followed by such

Intense

Tension

And

Trauma

That I feel 

Infuriated.

And there are days

Where I wake

And there is a preexisting

Low level

Violence 

In my ears

Like the trucks

That would pass by our house

And shake the pictures

That hung from the walls

During my childhood

We lived on a highway

These are the days 

My hormones 

Are dysregulated

And I am grossly defensive

Across all sensory systems

Don’t touch me

Don’t look at me

Don’t speak

These are the days 

Where headphones

Do NOT help.

Because they intensify

The low level 

Violence in my ears

That I awoke with.

These are the days 

I can’t think

I can’t speak

I can’t engage

I am totally avoidant

These are the most painful days
