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.

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:

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!

If we were only the sum of our fears, we'd live in a world of nightmares. It's just a matter of finding the light switch when we need it. Huggle!

That's very true, I never thought of it that way. :nod:  It's like I have my finger eternally on the light switch but sometimes it freezes and I can't remember how to turn it on, if that makes any sense. ^^;

Yes, it makes sense. I go through something very similar at times. But having your finger on the light switch in the first place is always good Hug

I love Lindsey Stirling and that song! This poem is bitter sweet... because it is beautifully written, but it saddens me to know you are feeling down in the dumps. :( I hope things get better soon, Catherine. :heart: And you know where to find me, if you need me.
