The Whole Thing Comes Crashing Down

What happens
after a
time is
the whole
thing comes
crashing down
not the
lifetime of
one small
crash after
another the
big crash
the crash
you can’t
pick yourself
up from
the crash
that sums
you up
& makes
you realize
there was
no point
where it
all went
wrong it
was always
wrong &
there’s
no fixing
it never
your life
was a
waste of
giving up
& then
trying again
until the
bottom
dropped out
& the
roof
crashed down.

 

Some people
carry on
past this
point.

 

Most don’t.
