Most people like silence. Complete silence. No sound. Silence is one of my worst fears. It feels as weird as it sounds, but I can’t stand silence. It feels like a dark cloud is chasing after me at all times and whenever it’s silent, it attacks. I just don’t like the thought of being in a silent room just to sit there with my thoughts. I guess that’s really the scary part. You never know what kind of horror story your brain can come up with. Even if it’s not scary, my brain just keeps making me think of random things that make me question everything. Silence can be violent at times. It just rips away at the few remaining brain cells I manage to spare until I can listen to something.
