Construction Failure

Brick by brick

Laying the foundation

Of what would be

A solid relationship

But the bricks failed

Were poorly constructed

And the walls

Began to fall

Kneeling in the debris

Of broken promises

I let a tear

Fall on my cheek

Before I wipe

It away

Like my dreams

Of us
