Bits and pieces

If I flatter you with bits and pieces of poetry
Clever snippets to make you blush
Will you stand and praise the empty spaces
As the walls tumble down around your feet
Forcing you to lift first one foot, then the other
Until you fall face first
Into the rubble
Perhaps into pieces
A shell of a person left
As I scribble on into the night.
