Shattered Dreams

IMGP3083

Shattered dreams,

cursed love,

nothing ever the same –

life drags on.

 

Shattered dreams,

broken hearts and dashed hopes,

never to be mended –

tears never ended.

 

Shattered dreams,

broken mirrors,

smoke and mist –

love that drifted away, never to stay.

 

Shattered heroes,

once the kings of love,

left behind –

hearts crushed in the dust.

 

Shattered queens,

once put upon love’s pedestal,

glorifying in the glow of love –

till the curtain came down.

 

Shattered dreams,

pieces of a puzzle,

never to find that missing link –

destroyed by love untrue.

 

Shattered dreams,

leading to sleepless nights,

arms empty and cold –

longing for love deep into the night.

 

Shattered dreams,

hot embers now cold,

once feeling so bold in love –

now unsure and dismal.

 

Shattered dreams,

like champagne glasses smashed into a fireplace,

never to be whole again –

slivers piercing the heart.

 

Shattered dreams,

falling tears,

lots of fears

and never ending rainy days –

leading to stormy and thunderous nights.

    Shattered dreams give us the shards to create again. Hopefully using ourselves not someone else as the fulcrum. While leaving room for love, and beauty.
