Poem: I Was Strong

I was strong.
I was fine.
I was bright.
Then there was a look.
A stir in my mind.
A crack in my shell.
A piece of me it took.
I was weak.
You poked my armor.
I cracked a little more.
I patched with your love.
I smiled with your warmth.
I was strong.
I peeled.
I slipped.
I fall away.
I was weak.
It’s too fast.
It’s too lonely.
It’s too dark.
It washes over me.
I sing… my voice is strong.
I am weak.
I want to ask… but I can’t.
I fall away, grasping for strong.
