Tinnitus


One day
He will lean close
And whisper in my ear
Shh

And all the rumbles
And buzzes
And bells
And howls
And hoots
And hums will
Shh

It has been a particularly bad day today. Perhaps it is my cold that had raised the volume of the ringing and buzzing. The background noise that I can usually live with took centre stage. All other sounds were mere whispers in comparison. People can’t hear the sounds that I hear. They don’t realise that they have competition for my attention.
