I hear crickets in a quiet room
where there are none to be found
and I can't quite tell
if it's an auditory hallucination
or tinnitus ringing in my ears.
Insecurity sets in,
and reminds me of all
the anxieties I once had.
Memories of being told
that I'm unstable
by the unprofessionals rush in,
I remember not to over think this.
Sometimes crickets are just crickets
and it's okay to accept
that no one else can hear them
chirping away in my ear.
