Broken

The indescribable sense of misery Burns within me,
Burns me to the crisp,
Blackening my soul,
Leaving my heart delicately torched,
The sides crumble to ashes in time,
Eroding to nothing but dust,
My sins found me again,
The cruel punishment takes place,
Leaving nothing,
Only the sound of fate laughing in my ear,
As I watch my dignity break piece by piece

I can accurately describe this piece as poetically depressing. I liked it. It speaks clearly of defeat and misery. The fifth and sixth lines were my favorites. Well done with this.
