Rocks Crumble by Anonymous

artwork by Livy Crandall


We cried together
I trusted you,
but as I held on you let go
How would I ever get up?
Like a sinking ship,
I was being pulled in
I didn't know if I would ever get up past the waves
The waves never ended, pulling me under
I never thought I would lose you
At that moment you were my everything, my rock
But rocks crumble
Rocks can also be made whole again
Jagged pieces turn smooth
Pebbles turn into rocks
But eventually, they find right where they need to be
