Sinking Sand - Poem by Meredith Fahey

My love is built upon the knowledge of you
That I was so sure of
Until that one moment
When it all dissolved like a sand castle at high tide
I built this love on sinking sand
With a hope that just this once it would survive
If I tried my hardest
Used the best sandstone I could find
But that too crumbles
Nothing was meant to survive the eternal crush of time
Not even love
