I can't bear to hear the silence

Muscles twitch in protest
at the endless beeping,
echoed in a thumping headache.

An ache slides through my jaw
thanks to gritted teeth,
as my breath keeps pace
with that infernal beeping.

A flood of shocking silence
stuffed into every corner
of a room devoid of personality.
And I'd give anything
 to hear that blessed beeping.
