100 Words – Volume

[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]

Loudness deafens even the most difficult of emotions.

You drown it. You hold it down underneath the waves of noise and you hold it whilst it struggles for air. Whilst it fights to be heard.

You turn the music up louder. You hold it down harder.

Then the emotion dies, it gives up.

You turn off the noise.

The silence is deafening. The void inside you where the emotion was is gaping.

You turn the music up again.
