Decibels (How I Lost my Hearing)


They say, the healthy human ear can hear certain frequencies ranging from hertz of twenties to a twenty multiplied by a thousand of ten... I lost count. I lost my hearing.


As far as I can remember, before, I can hear a rocket launch at approximately 200 decibels of range

dB of 165, a 12-gauge shotgun

At 145, fireworks gun shot

At 85, I heard the busy city traffic

75 the washing machine swirling at pacific,

Fantastic!

I can hear even the slightest earshot

I can hear their voices

Talking about some vices, trashes, or even some of their undending, impending, demanding, so-called "biases"

65

55

50 dB

25 down to fifteen, I heard the softest whisper...

Aces!

Below zero, I heard a leaf's hello swaying all down low

Witnessed a surrender from a once mighty hero.


At negative point something,

I heard a sound of great intensity

The density of my spatial quantity

Waving a goodbye with the loudest scream of gentility.

Hearing myself shattering in pieces

Succumbing the fatal truth of my present instability - vulnerability.

Facing the inevitable verity with all humility - tranquility.


They say, the healthy human ear can hear certain frequencies ranging from Hertz of twenties to a twenty multiplied by a thousand of ten.

I lost count.

I lost my hearing.

I found myself deaf after hearing decibels at negative point something.
