~::~ Broken Dreams ~::~
Staggering through, dark silent nights
Persisting ‘til fate reunites
Trundling low with my broken dreams
My heart echoes my muted screams
Biding time awaiting amorous rendezvous
Many decades I’ve transpired whilst staggering through
I’ve walked alone, through pale moonlights
Enduring fate’s unrighteous smites
Existence bursting at its seams
I trudge along till hope redeems
In wilds I loiter until Destiny atones
Through these pallid gossamer paths, I’ve walked alone
I hope you liked the poem, please leave your comments, feedback and brickbats
