Soul-shattering

Perturbed by your numbing presence that drills a hole in my soul, a painful shriek emanates from the depths only to be lost in you, once again.

Oh Silence, please speak to me!

------------------------------------------------------

This post is in response to the Trifextra Writing Challenge - Week Eighty-Five. The challenge is to write a 33-word piece using an 'apostrophe' - a figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.

Kind of a catch-22 you've got going there! Excellent apostrophe.

Yeah Kymm... Catch-22 indeed. I'm glad you liked it :)

With such artful language, you have illustrated that silence can be anything but golden! Amazing 33 words!!

It's like two extremes of the spectrum when it comes to Silence. Thank you for your wonderful words Valerie :)

I crave silence, at least a little every day. This beautiful piece, however, reminds me of how isolating and lonely it can be! Well done, SD!

Thanks Gina. It's strange indeed how something that we crave a bit of can turn into something that one may be troubled by.

I think that Silence can scream loader than anything else... yes it can

Silence can be miserable, when we crave something else.

Ah but then it wouldn't be silence anymore, so you'd never have your wish anyway.
Silence can be disheartening though. It's best in small amounts.
Thank you for linking up!

This is great! Silence is powerful. We crave it when we don't have it, but too much can be maddening. You've presented the contrast beautifully!
