The Sound of Heartbreak
by Nikita Gill
It is eerily terrifying that there is no sound when a heart breaks.
Car accidents end with a bang, falling ends with a thud, even writing makes the scratching sound of pencil against paper.
But the sound of a heart breaking is completely silent. Almost as though no one, not even the universe itself could create a sound for such devastation.
Almost as though silence is the only way the universe could pay its respect to the sound of a heart falling apart.
