Breaking Apart

Breaking Apart

The fission of my soul
Creates energy to destroy 
Or power the world around me. 

Its awesome power is created
in one simple small nucleus. 
That builds a bomb to flatten everything I’ve built
Or power and sustain it all forever. 

But more likely, it’s a dud.

That just collapses on itself
And leaves the elements
hollow and withdrawn 
From everything.
