Stone Walls

 Day by day

You chip away

Chip by chip

You remove each brick

Brick by brick

You demolish the walls

 My walls

You broke in

But you won’t

Break me ©

  1. A real sense of determination and of giving the illness the fingers here, Rach!
    A wee suggestion, how does ‘broke through’ sound for the walls?

    Best regards


      1. Yes, I thought that was why – it was just that walls being ‘broke in’ just sounded unnatural to my ear, as I would normally expect ‘break down’ or ‘break into’, but you are right to keep it for that sense the invasion. Great poem!
