Something Said

Hanging my hopes
On the light of a candle
Until the wind blows it out
Your words
That fateful breeze
Tearing me down
In the midst of my dream
Did you ever stop to think
I might have feelings?
Destroyed by judgement
And reckless presumption
Or do I need to learn
To take criticism better
A fine line to balance
At the edge of this cliff
Of possible destruction
Intent on building up

One thought on “Something Said

  1. Every single heart deserves to believe their truth. The hardest part is figuring out what that is because this chaotic world we live in is full of brokenness and lies. No living thing is created exactly the same as any of its kind, that came before it, since, or will in the future.
