Sonic Doom

A light hearted view of a very noisy night in the suburbs of a large city.

My special thanks to my dear friend Gabby who helped me with this poem.

So tranquil in our bedroom, no noises in the room

The silence in my lovers’ arms, is shattered far too soon


Annoying noises in the dark, avoidance can be hard

Imposing on your privacy, with blatant disregard


Something always spoils our mood, it really drives me wild

Dogs barking in the distance, or the crying of a child


Again I snuggle up to her, to escape the daily grind

And then the bloody phone rings, it nearly blows my mind


I even bought some ear plugs, I kissed and stroked her head

Then our car alarm went off, so I got up out of bed


All I ask is silence, for just a half an hour

I just need time to make love, then maybe grab a shower


When I least expect it, silence turns up out the blue

At last my chance for passion, a chance I must pursue


By now I’m quite excited, I think I’m gonna weep

I turn to face my lover, but now she’s gone to sleep
