As Deep as A Grave

I finally figured it out last night. I lay in the dark and truly listened to the sound that has been bothering me so much for weeks now.

It is the sound of nothing, no sound of life, as if all life is shut out. As I lay in my bed, I could almost feel the darkness close itself around me. The house creaked and snapped as the dirt settled over the top of it.

I used to love silence.
