I hear the melodic notes and can’t help but cringe.
I can’t explain why.
When I hear the artsy, folksy tunes of today and yesterday,
I roll my eyes.
When I hear the upbeat, funky pop music of today and yesterday,
I shut it off.
When I hear the guitar riffs and power ballads of rock and roll,
I walk away.
Once upon a time, I had a song for every moment of my life.
A soundtrack of memories.
But now, I only want to listen to the sound of silence.
Silence brings me peace.
