Daily Prompt: A Source of Anxiety: When Silence Tells You Everything You Need to Know

Write about a noise — or even a silence — that won’t go away. (We’ll let you interpret this in different ways…)

It’s literally nothingness, except for your own subjective thoughts on the situation. In those moments of silence, you can be slapped by reality and come to a realization that there’s nothing left to fill the void of communication. This can be the look in your lovers eyes, after a long, exhausting fight one night; that say “I’m giving up.” The way to get any “noise” out of a situation, is by listening to the underlying degree and tension of the silence.
