You crumbled my walls,

Hammering into each individual brick until it was nothing but dust,

What was once a stable structure is now a pile of debris,

And now I am weak, nothing but fragmented pieces of stone, is that what you wanted?

My memories have been displaced, smashed apart, what is real? What is fake?

The cement that supported me is no longer there,

Whatever was left intact is slowly cracking, my support collapsing, myself disintegrating,

Soon, I will be nothing, just a faded memory,

I used to be strong, I used to be whole,

I used to have a purpose until you,

Destructive, selfish,

Decided I was too strong, too stable,

Despised that I was able to stand on my own two feet, and so you knocked me over.

You are the reason I am no longer what I used to be,

Now I am just a pile of debris.
