In Dim Light

Memory fades
like her body
in dim light

I bury my head
in open hands
to escape noises

'Memory fades like her body in dim light' shows nothing. How do I know how her body fades, in the first place, to understand the metaphor? The next three lines dont make sense- how to you 'bury' your head? that too In open 'hands'? and too to escape 'noises'.. Why not just close your ears..I just dont get this poem at all (I didnt mark it one though)
