What used to be rows of little pink houses

White picket fences

Now unrecognizable

Piles of rubbish

 

As I walk down the streets of our life together

It is all the same

Crumbled houses

Fallen family trees

 

Like a spoiled sport

Who sweeps the game from the table

Rather than take a loss

No one will play now

 

It does not take long to see the devastation

Of the storm you mastered

A whirlwind of emotion

Leveling the house we built

 

Chaos sounds like

A roaring wind

Sturdy structures being obliterated

Screaming, crying

Unforgettable

Unmistakable

Sound of fear

 

Now all that is left is the silence

 

The silence

Deafening

Driving one into a state of madness

 

While the rest roll up their sleeves

Trying to create some assemblence of what

Once was

It is a sad tribute to the nature of man that women should suffer so
