Have you heard the sound of a person breaking?
It is the loudest ‘Great!’ to your ‘What’s up?’, rattling inside a hollow box, waiting to explode.
It is a song so loud, you cannot hear yourself scream anymore.
It is the sound of long showers that hide muffled sobs behind a curtain of indifference.
It is the sound of abilities shattering like a mirror under the weight of the cloud that just won’t pass.
It is the quietest cheer while everyone else is busy toasting the incoming weekend.
It is the unending silence of a warm afternoon, waiting for a call or text from someone, anyone, just to feel like a part of humanity again while scrolling through a maze of manufactured happiness.
It is the recess bell that never rings.
