And all the tower came crashing down, the blocks collapsing in a pile of rubble. The edifice once stood tall and sturdy but it already had termites eating it from the inside, laying down the initial dominoes that would fall one against the other until the building finally weakened, swayed, and fell away, returned to its original state–dust and nothing.



I write down words to muffle the screams

and helpless, slip away in between

yet often i think i feel too much.

I long consumed the spaces within,

freezing silence, leaving no room but

written out words and muffled down screams.

lone wanderer in search of meaning,

who cowers away from human touch–

fall helpless; slip away in between.

If only I knew how to simply  be;

to shoulder the weight of the grim truth

and write down words in muffled screams.

but how long will cold mortality,

sad melodies and lost moments haunt?

the helpless slip away in between

Give bits, then pieces, then all of me.

I can’t tell how I miss you this much

I’ll write down words to muffle the screams

while helplessly slipping in between.
