Silence is loud…

Inspired by the pictures of the doors, from The Mexi Movie Blog. Check her new doors HERE

Every essay, like every good poem, should have a dark and silent place in it.
Kazim Ali.

Silence. You always think there’s nothing there. 
But there’s always ‘something’ there, something huge and real. There is no silence if there’s no life. And life is everywhere. Even behind the closed doors, inside of an empty room. If you listen carefully – you can hear the harmonic sounds of the silence, you can hear infinity…

“I dont know why I’m still living here. We are frequently abused by humans. Each time I’m outside I have to watch out for those crazy screaming kids:”Oh look, it’s a rat.” “Eu, kick it!” – said squeaky voice. 

“At least you are a pet, bro…I am still one scary ass creature. How’s yours?”

“Mike and Jessica? Like a rabbits”

“What kind of speed?”

“Variable speeds. Usually going pretty fast. Almost on the speed limit. I’ve tried to stop them, but…”

“Let them. They are young. And young humans are the horniest mammals on the Earth.” – slowly said a voice.

“You are too wise, Spider, because you are living in an empty house.”

“I had a visitors last afternoon. Again! Very loud couple…”

“Yeah, I’ve heard them screaming. Haha”

“It was a man…Women are not automatically scared of us, spiders. In fact most of the calls the Local Spider Society gets from worried men. For example, yesterday he saw me: “Aaaaaaa!!! There’s a spider on the bed!” Hm, man, any self-respecting spider is sleeping on the bed. And in fact, we, hairy spiders, are not dangerous. In fact nobody has ever died from a tarantula bite!”

“Stupid people…”

“No, Rat. Paranoid people! They scare the living fck out of me.”

“Yeah, and only with two legs.”

“Always getting a small heart attack when I see it. Two-legged creatures that God put on this earth to create fear. Schhhhhhh!!!”

Silence.

“But I always miss them…when they aren’t home.” – whispered a rat.

  1. Finally made it here! Love doors! Not so much the ones with the metal frames attached! The metal keeps the “two legs” from entering for their nasty deeds. I guess!
    We do not have to like the creatures, however, we must remember they are here for a reason.

  2. 😀 I’d never thought I’d love a post with a wiggling hairy spider. But they are right: only two legs are scarier. I don’t know what the people of this town would say about this, or Italian men about their screaming. 😉 I’m very glad my doors inspired such a nice reversal. I agree: we are scarier than anything else.

    1. Spiders ain’t my fav-s too haha..but they live almost in each house, so it was a good idea (I hope). Yes, we are scarier than any living creature.. not sure should we count it like a big plus + or a big minus – :/ glad u liked the story :))
