Demolition: Speed of Love

I see them on their good days
And it’s hard to believe
The damage that the fairer of the two
Sometimes inflicts
When she lashes out
Unseen
On her darker days

The gaping holes wrecked into the seawall here
Speak of forces beyond comprehension

I go out here like everyone else
Just to watch on the really big days
But the seawall always seems to hold

Yet the evidence is there
That on some days
It isn't so strong

Maybe it’s like most of us
And it only tends to break down
In the dark of night
When no one is looking
