So much noise

So much noise
Pain explodes from the sound
Sound felt more than heard
Sound without meaning

Words chosen for volume
Sounds created to fill space
Message garbled by background noise
For the noise covers the signal

Sometimes silence can scream out
The faintest click has clear meaning
Waiting and listening
In silence, there is only signal

Today it is an unknown code
If there is signal, it is unknown
Unable to transcribe
Noise and distortion render a null message

Through pain the attempt is finished
Attempts to decode are a fool’s task
