We Close Our Ears

Regina Puckett



The sound of a heart breaking

Is gut-wrenching and breathtaking

It’s the clamor of silence mixed with pain

A thunderstorm without the relief of rain

A dying mother hearing her baby’s screams

A trapped traveler without his own dreams

To survive we close our ears and try to pretend

This agony and wretchedness will somehow end
