Deafening Silence

My room is mostly quiet. The only time I ever watch movies or stream from the internet my headphones are on and my room is left behind. Then when I take the headphones out of my ears all I can hear is silence. Tonight I actually heard my food digesting. Heard it sloshing and turning like the rinse cycle. It made me realize just how deserted the space between my bedroom window and my head actually is. I even talk to D in silence. All that can be heard is my incessant clicking on the keyboard and my breathy exclamations when he writes back something funny (which is often). Then I step outside my apartment and I'm invaded with sound. I feel like two different people. I can't wait to be one again.
