Like a tuning fork
burrowing into my ears
that can’t be unheard

  2. Yes … and that others can’t hear or understand! Pre-natal and growing up years immersed in parental cigarette smoke is the cause of mine ….

    Out of great suffering comes great poetry. AND you don’t need any suffering to write well. Sending a hug.

  6. I sometimes hear a soft swishing sound. I wonder if I am developing tinnitus. I am having slight problems hearing over background noise too. I guess my hearing is pretty good for 72.
    I hope you find some relief, Bartholomew. Thanks for sharing in the lovely poem.
