Gravity

More by this author
I fall. I climb. I climb and I fall.
But I climb to fall.
I build so I can watch what I make crumble to pieces.
I watch the sand sift through my open fingers.
I let the wave claim my castle as its own.
I let it all come down on me, earth and ocean.
I have just enough power to watch myself fail,
Just enough hope to let my dreams die in my arms,
Over and over.
I am gravity and I pull everything down.

This really does remind you of self sabotage, in a way describes different events or things we have to go through in our lives

I really like this, and it actually inspired me to write something so you should check out my work to see when I post it. It will be called "Just Enough"

some of the metaphors are cliche. the last line really pulled things together.
