I watched you implode,
like the stars you always wish on.
Your beautiful edifice succumbed
to unimaginable and unseen
You were always so full,
of life, of love, of strength;
I never would have believed
if you told me
that the weight was approaching
violent, critical mass.
There was never so much as a crack
in your stunning facade.
No hint that the maelstrom within
was falling in upon itself.
The only sign,
of your spectacular destruction,
were those words
you sent me in a text message:
“I’m falling together. Too much life is getting in.”

That last line. That quote. I don’t know who you wrote this about, or what happened, but I think I can guess, and I know exactly what this person meant by what they said.
Thanks for reading and commenting! I was a bit confused by it when I wrote it and was going to change it, but since it challenged me, I left it there. I don’t always know what I’m writing when I write it.
I know what you mean. I don’t either. The same holds true for my drawings.
