moments of silence

who knew that moments of silence
could inflict lacerations
as slight as papercuts
and eventually break a heart
who knew…?

Inspiration: A papercut on my wrist. Ouch!

  1. Dear Sonya,

    A powerful poem! Small things, like paper cuts, can hurt so much.

    Silence, too, can be painful. It comes back to the atmosphere of the silence.

    All good wishes,

    robert
