Even when your eyes are closed, the colours of the world surround you, Your imagination keeps you awake. Sounds, everywhere. The ticking of clocks, the drip of faucets; It forces you to stay awake. A flood of thoughts and memories come to your mind, Turning each into monsters, clawing at your emotions. The sound of them are overwhelming; The colours splattered everywhere.
You decide to listen to some music, your favourite song, the one you have listened to probably a hundred times this week. You hit repeat because that's what would calm you, Even though you’ve listened to it so many times you think your ears will bleed; The sweet sounds an addiction. You continue, to drown out the sounds your mind provides. The constant, deafening yells of danger, The vivid memories of all the times that you’ve failed. The music gets louder to drown out the terrible sounds your mind provides, To cover the ugly colours in sweet melodies.
