The Noise

There was a sound in the darkness
That kept her awake
She didn’t know how much more
Noise she could take
She searched in the closet
And then with much dread
She dropped to her knees
And looked under the bed
Went through every room
Turned on all the lights
Checked behind doors
Then stared off in the night
The noise was still rumbling
It’s volume unfettered
Like the pain in her chest
Yes, she should’ve known better
The noise was inside her
That kept her awake
This was the sound
Of a lonely heartbreak.
