Broken Structure

All we see are falling ceilings.
Our only safe haven, our only home.

Falling. Sprawling. Helplessly, to the dirt.
And all we knew then was the sky and air.

The house lived on as broken structure.
Über beautiful, yet utterly unsubstantial.

Debris and finished memories perfumed the air.
And all we'd seen we're falling roofs.

I loved your imagery and how you brought life to lifeless things. Though, it pains me to see that you used slang! However, you're really getting somewhere. 5 stars :)
