I was once strong. Stronger than anyone else around me. I took whatever anyone threw at me and added it to my armor.
Now I just fall apart a piece at a time

I was once flexible. I was able to bend and adjust to any situation that came my way.
Now I canít turn my head to see a different way.

I was once detached. Never too close to anyone. Never too close to my feelings.
Now I fear losing people. Now I fear losing myself.

I was once able to stand alone. Tall. Firm.
Now I sway in the wind. Vulnerable. Weak.

I was once me.
Now I am a ghost of myself.

Just shy of classic.
This is an excellent piece. With some careful reworking it could be a classic.

Unique viewing angle
At heart, this piece rings true. I agree with gsmonks. This is a gem in the rough.
