    Mary Anne, this is beautiful. I relate to this, the buzzing, the frenetic energy its creating. Some times it gets to be too much, the noises need to be quieted. It makes you wonder if you are truly losing your mind doesn't it? Hugs my friend-

    I mean it's hard to put just one word on this, it's one of the best poems I've read in a while. It's a simple subject something we all do from time to time and how u just put it on a new level with the perfect placed words to tied that simpleness in with the complexity of your thoughts. I love it great write awesome work!!!!!!!

    This a beautiful! I can relate to the buzzing and how it can drive one nuts if not stopped

    I totally loved the below...beautifully penned!
    "a fluorescent light in agony" reminds me of: when one sees stars when struck/disturbed. What a beautiful way to relay it.

    Also loved the below:
    But the buzzing hasn't stopped, and though I've looked in every crevice,
    there are no more flies or cloying insects, only the humid halls of a brain on
    life support
    [this rings true for sounds continue to echo inside the head...I mean any keep hearing it long after it ends]

    Beautifully written...

    Fantastic stuff MA. A totally relatable write perfectly depicting the dissonance we can feel from killing even a fly! I hope the buzzing ends soon! :-) x
