Feint

leaf trembles
as violent truth
a gale
blows asunder
all relief and
swallows defense

delicate
longing
feint

a lopsided ceiling
caves
remains
a woebegone
dispirited display
a monument

gentle wind
or brazen,
fall away
or stay

tis a poisoned tree
and both shall die
in winter
neither
to be reborn

This does flow, and then becomes totally crushing in the end.

Wow, I love this. There's something cathartic, but tender here. I agree, beautiful use of language, it flows.
