Drop by Drop

It began with a drizzle

Pin pricks falling down hard

Where they hurt most

Not just running off skin

Percolating through every pore

Seeping deep within

Stripping off confidence

Self worth, self regard, self esteem, self belief

And then it became a downpour

Sharp words, soaking what remained

Carrying away a heart into the drain
