Just a quicky I wrote while waiting for class to begin (I guess that explains the title, doesn't it?)

Cacophony.
Voices mingling,
thoughts spoken,
merging, seperating, colliding,
over and over again.
Constant barage of sound,
pummeling, then lifting.
Assaulting, oppressing,
Luring you in,
only to push you back.
Snippets of wisdom,
clouded by shouts of idiocy.
Pearls of humor,
hazed by crass exclaim.
Silence unknown,
yet so desperately desired.

------------------
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

What's "cacophony" mean? Darnit, need to get the dictionary...

Loved the way your words mimicked the sounds... very well done.... hard to believe you wrote this in minutes.

makes me miss college, that's for sure!

I like your use of oxymoronic expressions JP!

Dazed and confused for so long now....
