She has tinnitus
Says it sounds like a symphony
Tones that ebb and flow into infinity
Smiles and nods, faking it brilliantly
Her body is failing and she can hear
Everything
She has tinnitus
Says it’s nothing really
Winces when the sound jabs too deeply
Can’t stand the radio, hates to be needy
The noise is like knives and she can hear
Everything
She has tinnitus
Says it feels like a fantasy
The ambient soundtrack to her every reverie
The howling void outside our reality
The edges are ragged and she can hear
Everything
She has tinnitus
Says it’s like electricity
Angels in the wiring screaming in assembly
Incomprehensible, prone to insanity
The simulation’s failing and she can hear
Everything
