The tears from my eyes
Drop down
Heavily as bricks
From a building in demolition
Deconstruct the feeble architecture
Of my walls
They’re torn with no protection
No ceiling
No foundation
A barren landfill is what I am
A forgotten waste of space
Dirt and dust fill my void
Not to mention the litter that comes my way
The last sounds are the crashes
Of bulldozers that bust my barriers
I used to be a castle filled with hopes and dreams
I used to be a home to a family of three
I used to be a church to house of those in faith
I used to be a roof to keep those I love safe
But now I am broken
I am a project in destruction
My sign says “danger” above work in progress
Blocking me are barbed wires to shut in all regrets
I am a land in quarantine, people are told to “keep out”
From the signs on wired fences
They aren’t defenses
They’re just imprisoning me in doubt
