White noise

That’s what it is like, hazy, unclear, disturbing, making no sense at all. It just goes on and on and on, disturbs your senses, your ears, your eyes..

That screechy, crazy noise that makes you change the channel, switch off you television sets, before which every other sound ceases to exist and you hope that next time when you turn on your systems, the noise would vanish.. It makes you stop doing everything else, the noise is so powerful and disturbing, it bangs inside your head, turns everything upside down and if it doesn’t stop, makes you scream!!

Can you imagine yourself locked in a room, being forced to hear that blare again and again??

For me loneliness is like that “white noise”.. Call it quarter life crises when you don’t know which way to go, when all your friends are either married or dating and you find yourself all alone, no sound except the fan running or the tube light hizzing. You turn the T.V on and are greeted by that white noise and then suddenly you begin recognizing the pattern, the notes in that profound, insane noise and appreciating that crazy sound..

You’re in for trouble, you’re loosing your mind.. that white noise has begun creeping in your life!!

To be true, I'm trying to analyze the emotions & the thought process behind this post of yours. It comes straight from the heart and to the heart.

If you don't mind I would like to ask you a question.
Why is there so much agony in your words?
I don't know whether i'm qualified enough to ask such a qestion. :)

Hmmm.. we say quarter life crisis.. but i guess every stage in our life is... adolescence, quarter life, middle age, old age.. everything.. Life is indeed a struggle! And one think I learnt the hard way is - Grass is always greener on the other side!

You are not alone, this is a widespread phenomenon/epidemic ... so chill :-)

Some quick remedies -
#1 Marriages ... they are happening by leaps and bounds all around me too. So, either get married or stay happy single at all times ready to mingle :-)

#2 Get an air-conditioner, switch off the fans :-P

#3 Don't watch too much television

More later, in case the noise persists :-)

Sam said...

Sangfroid, Lols, yeah thats some solace and regarding your remedies:
- I'm more of a single, all times ready to mingle kind of a person so no sweat.. :D
