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

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

Sometimes the feeling is there, even if I know in my heart it's not true. I just have to convince myself more fervently of it. :) she really is! :squee:

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

I like he images created here a lot..... but goodness, that ending. If you let the fears win, then maybe you will become that. But, I'm not going to let that happen, nor is anyone else who cares about you :-) :hug:

Aww, you...:tighthug: I'm a bit too sentimental for my own good, I think.  But I always appreciate any help anyone can give me. :)

Really beautiful stuff, but sad :<

However, may I ask what you meant by "neo-cities"? It's a fascinating image and caught my attention, but I'm a bit confused about its meaning here, sorry :blush:

It's no trouble. :)  The person I had in mind has a fascination for futuristic things, you see.  They could be an architect if they wanted to, and build something truly fantastic.

I'm glad you liked it!
