Ruins of my Phantom City

I curse myself for building it
with these bare hands
The Phantom City
It was massive and all pretty
adorned with jewels of a wide variety
but today I stand and gaze over
over the ruins of what I once built

My City
I thought it was eternal
Ah! the foolish me
It was just an illusion
always waiting to fade away
in this thin air that engulfs me

The ruins lay scattered with fond memories of yesterday
I pick up a few pieces and they shout
“Destroy to Create!”
I must destroy the wrongs
the evil within me
and begin a new life, a new city
That will be my Eternal City.

  1. destroy to create..sometimes that's the only way..and out of ruins have been built the most fab. things…just think of antoni gaudi who used crashed ceramic pieces to build pure beauty..
