tiniest

… the smallest of sounds isn’t
the meek calling of a mouse
portraying Nicholas Cage in an
action adventure epic, to
pillage and plunder traps for cheddar

… nor is the quietest sound
the sigh of a heart, ripped
apart when reading a heartbreaking
mind-crushing letter

… neither is it the flutter of
a Monarch’s wings on the breeze
on the final day of its life

… it’s none of these things.

but the sting of a tear,
which never came out of the caves
of one’s eyes, on guard from
uncontrollable fears that bring
even the strongest to their knees

  1. This is so true…and so beautifully written. The sound of a tear really is the tiniest sound.
