My entry for the Dark Dreamscape competition, August 2021.
Surround Sound

No more than a sibilant whisper
at first,
but the volume increases,
my head's fit to burst.
A cacophony sears,
rears and distorts,
ripping and shredding
all of my thoughts;
destroying identity
ripping up 'me';
invisible voices from
those I can't see.
Full surround sound
that just won't be ignored
until I am beaten,
until I am floored.
Then leaving me distraught,
lost and alone,
the voices will cease...
But I won't be fooled,
return they soon will,
destroying the slightest
semblance of peace.
