Breaking

Standard

Because of all the discord and chaos

Surrounding me

As a child

I learned to listen beyond what I heard.

And I learned to delve into deep and quiet Places

Observing.

Unnoticed to go untouched.

Adults. Objects thrown with insults. Hits leaving bruises; drawing blood. Trembling tears.

And

What I heard and saw

There

Was hearts breaking.
