Crashing Down

Down this road, do you see that empty spot?
That’s where there was a house
One we’d built for the two of us.
Flowers in vases, the glow of the fireplace
I remember every space,
Every memory and moment we’d made,
All that’s now erased.

Somehow, someday, something broke in
It got to us, I guess, and there it begins
The tumbling of the walls we’d built together
They no longer stood up straight
You threw stones at the windows, knocked down our gate
Every memory and moment we’d made,
Crashing down, a house in an earthquake.
