Desolate, Depleted, Demolished

By Sadie Bell

Careless
drain and discard me,
I am your empty vessel

Collapsing
surrender your weapons,
my shield lays shattered on the floor

Cracking
fasten a bow around my jagged edges-
glorify me while I decay beyond

Crumbling
particle by particle,
grind me to dust beneath your tread

craving-
caving-
crushed.
