Shattered dreams

 

Blink of an eye
shattered dreams lay at my feet
Quick or you’ll miss the
tolling of the bell
What was it you were saying
it’s over
Forever is but a word
a lie we tell ourselves
Darkness falls clock strikes twelve
carriage pumpkin horses mice
You leave me weeping in a heap
future brushing past fingertips
Without a  backward glance
picking up the pieces
Blink of an eye
shattered dreams lay at my feet
Quick or you’ll miss the
tolling of the bell
What was it you were saying
it’s over

About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on chowanyau@wordpress.com. Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
