Today I share a poem that this word inspired in me.
Piercing light through barely open eyelids
Noise assaulting ear drums
Hands grasping head in frustration and fear
Rocking back and forth
Craving solitude and quiet
Manhandled and coerced
Limbs heavy and immobile
Words indecipherable and sharp
Longing for nothingness
Welcoming a black hole of sensory deprivation
