In my heart 
There's a nail
Protruding long
Outside its core,
In my hand 
There's a hammer
Leaving me a choice
To pull the nail free
Or leave it to rest
In the center of my soul.
And this nail
However deeply it stabs
Or loosely it traps
The litter of dreams
And hopes I've trapped inside,
Gathering them together 
To be displayed like
A dying tribute 
To a once loved species,
A once treasured creation,
Decides my fate
And traps my destiny.
And though I know the nail
Needs to be removed
To release my heart
Of its futile struggle
To hold a collection
Of dying memories, 
Every time I feel the nail loosen
As I've grown to older,
Less naive,
Less hopeful,
Every time I grab that hammer
And smash it against 
That obvious futility
Against that nail
And watch as new cracks form
While the nail 
Is pushed deeper inside,
Crowding these beautiful
Useless hopes,
These regrettable dreams
Further inside
Till the day
They might finally find 
A home inside my heart
Or possibly
A grave.


So, yeahhh another piece on the disillusionment that comes with age (sorry if I spoiled it for you). Hope everyone enjoys.
