when it is silent

when I’m deep inside my head
I get scared
when it is silent,
there should be noise,
laughter,
buzzing,
static,
screeching,
something to indicate that I am alive
when it is silent,
deep deep down here,
something somewhere has broken,
and not in the usual way,
in some serious,
this is going to take a long time to fix,
way,
because
when it is silent
all the way down here,
I can’t even hear myself scream
