The one uttered but never heard.
The unexpected one,
that nobody saw coming.
The one that socked you in the stomach,
and left you doubled over in pain.
The one that sat in the pit of your soul,
asking for your deaf heart to listen.
The one that crept up behind you
when you were not looking
and bashed your heart in.
The one that took the daydream rainbows
from your mind and smashed them
against the jagged edges of reality.
The one that slipped through your hands
without you noticing that things had changed,
and nothing was going to be the same.
