That brief moment of absolute silence

Right before the trembling music hits you

The tiny skip of breath 

Before your heart pumps once more time

That fleeting moment of scare

Just before your eyes seek out your loved ones in the crowd 

That absolute second of realization before an eternity of ignorance 

Have you felt it ever

Touched that single moment with your being

Realized the knock of every locked up feeling 

Just before the wall cracks and white noise seeps through

Between conversations and discussions 

Documents and deadlines

Meetings and mails

Typing and talking

Have you ever felt even more broken than you already are

And yet built up stronger than you ever were before today
Have you too…..
