Crumbling

Life erodes my strength

I am tired

Stress is the villain

Making me exhausted

I work so hard

Trying to be in control

But slowly my hold

Begins to deteriorate

Crumbling around me

The foundation is not sound

And more of my life chips away

I try to get back to you

Latching onto something stable

If only you’ll reach out your hand

Pull me from this shrinking reality

Into the safety of your arms


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – deteriorate
