    I Hate Silence...

    I hate silence because it reminds me  I'm alone, and loneliness frightens me. I'm not and never will be a solitary person. when I found myself in loneliness I feel sorry for myself, how can I be so lonely if the world is full of people. So many souls and mine...

    A Man Of Sound - i'm the opposite of my mother,

    while my mother prefers peace and quiet and has an aversion to loud noises or music, I have an aversion to silence but I like playing my music at moderately loud volume and don't mind noise in the slightest. I keep my volume down just to make sure I don't alienate my...

    Now I Always Have My Ipod On

    I used to be able to walk around my life enjoying the silences. Some of them were happy and full l, some were deep with emotion or wistful with mystery. I loved being one of few with ears uncovered, paying attention to what the world had to say. now, however, I am hurt and lonely...

    Absence Of Life

    I hate it. First thing I do when I wake up is to turn on the TV and the radio. Likewise when I come back from work. Not because I care about what's on, but I need the noise. I can't do art without some background music and I can't concentrate when I do chores without something...

    Silence Is For Real.

    I hate silence because it seems like when everything is quiet it is showing who I really am. Like everyone who is around me can tell what emotions i'm feeling and it seems they know everything about me. The silence to me is evil. It represents the most hurtful and heart breaking...

    I Cannot Stand Silence Or Being Alone.

    When i am alone i feel exactly the opposite. I feel like the world is just against me, like people are looking at everything i do everywhere i am. I cannot even shower without closing and locking the door when I'm alone at home. I feel watched, as if there is camera's there or...

    Silence honestly annoys me to no end,

    it makes everything hard to focus on and it drives me insane. There are only a few times that silence is required for me to endure and that's mostly during on campus exams, even then I am fidgety and annoyed that there cant even be some kind of soft background music just to...

    Silence Is Uncomfortable

    I hate silence because it is school. School is an old cemented building that is forever hounded by darkness. School lives in the shadow of grey. Lessons are too quiet sometimes for me to bear. I have to make up excuse to leave, which is not easy. I am always in the sick bay...
