he cradled the neo-cities in his hands,
impenetrable (perfection like you're not)
inescapable (irrationality your most wicked foe)

and i,
an insignificant speck
in the graveyard of the
most desolate metropolis,
cower

the remaining ghosts
caress my every moment -
living and dead -
and strip me away

till i am nothing
but the sum of my fears

and a husk

never

meant

to

be

loved
Shatter Me - Lindsey Stirling feat. Lzzy Hale

the fears of many, it seems.

What can i say that hasn't already been said?

This reminds me, gently, of holocene by bon iver. Perhaps it's the insignificant bit. 

Wonderfully done.

You are not insignificant in the slightest, and you are truly meant to be loved. Also, Lindsey Stirling is awesome.

I missed your smiling face so much while I was gone, but you were one of the hardest people for me to talk to when I came back.  I really, really didn't want to hurt you.  If you were insignificant, I wouldn't have missed you, and I wouldn't have been scared to hurt you.

I love the second and third stanzas. They paint such a vividly harsh picture, but I love it. This poem is really powerful.
