Did you hear 
The sound was 

An intense roar 
in my ears

The reverberation 
rattled my bones

And thundered through 
my soul 

Your ego muffled
the sound


I heard it loud 
and clear
The sound of 
my heartbreak

  1. Narcissism/ego can do that. Muffle the sounds of other voices beyond their own and then break hearts. What a powerful poem for survivors to understand that they are not alone, that they were manipulated. That’s how I interpret this particular poem.
