soul mates

screeching machinery
clearly screaming
always at night
while I try to sleep
noises like a factory
surround me
but I can only focus
on the deep thud
every two seconds
slowly counting
still losing numbers
with every screech
and scream
preventing any dream
others find all silent
they appear to be deaf
sleeping easily
all around me


my ears are bleeding
my head is aching
my mind is reeling
they're still sleeping


I'm still counting
the thuds
