Noises

There is the sound of someone crying, coming from the stairwell. Sort of like a stop start sobbing.

Brief seconds of silence followed by swallowed gulps and tears.

I can’t tell if it is above or below me.

I have put in my ear plugs, but they do not help. It is almost as if the crying vibrates through my skull, then slips down into the knot in my stomach.

Resonating.

I am unable to sleep.
