Their tangled chattering filling the space,
Hungrily gulping the empty air
Until they have devoured all.
Chewing until only I am left,
With no sense of space or purpose
Waves of nonsense battling my defeated form.
Sleep tugs at me,
Suddenly the noises shift, pushed back by my mind
Their yelps now a soft lullaby.
Exhaustion cradles me as i sleep.
