White Noise

Prompt: The cliché is nothing more than an expression of truth, once fresh and vibrant, which has lost its power, resonance and depth and become lifeless through excessive repetition. As poets, we take our work seriously, even if we don't take ourselves seriously, by making the effort to approach each moment or experience from a different angle, one that may catch us completely off guard, through the use of the basic artistic tool: imagination. Write a poem about something in a different way.

A wave of silence pummels me,
amplifying the echo of my heartbeat
and swamping me as I stand alone
in the void.
