Lists of littlest things

Gold and other pearls,
Diamond and edifice in the porch,
Estates and sleek cars
Just like flowers cut at sunrise 
Withered at sunset.

The beauty upon brows
And shoulders high of feats
They're the meandering roads,
Torns and pebbles
All adorning the surfaces. 

Titles or accolades,
Fames and praises,
Those things for which we go to war
Knowledge and wisdom,
Space and vacuum. 

The last time I went to the grave,
So were all buried-under the crimson earth,
And an epitaph reads:
The littlest things are what we die for....

Pick me piece by piece
Mend me one soul at a time
Heal me through you, us

Broken rocks same as broken heart
Into pieces which no love will join them
They only stay at where they seems to stay
