The Dismantling Of A Soul

Soul Poetry

She's tried to be the strong one,

that sturdy, unbreakable wall.

But after years of doing it alone,

the mortar starts to fall.

What's held her all together,

slowly drops away.

More and more corrosion,

takes a toll each day.

Then the bricks of her strength,

start to break and crumble.

There upon the debris,

she begins to stumble.

One by one,

they fall out of place.

Till finally, at last,

she's but an empty space.
