The Sound of Heartbreak

written by: TJ Brooks



Imagine the sound

of a million butterflies dying

That’s the sound

of heartbreak


We often describe love as feeling like we have butterflies fluttering inside us. This micropoem looks at the love of loss with a reference to butterflies that makes my heart cry every time I read it.
