I long for silence and darkness.
No more noisy trains, revving cars, blaring radios
And bias TV rubbish.
No more trivial talk about the weather
And exchanging pleasantries
With people that give me no pleasure.
I just want silence.
Not a peep, not a twitter, not a beep,
No screeches, no sighs, no huffs or puffs.
No dazzling lights, blinding flashes,
Neon explicits, directing arrows,
Overloading my dilated pupils,
I just want darkness.
I want to see the stars and the moon
Without distraction and without sound.
And realise that I am but a little speck
In this mad, over- stimulated, overwhelming,
Relieve my senses
And let me appreciate all its wonders.
