It’s nothing short of shameful really

This chasms we’ve laid between us

Just as it seems to shrink, it widens

And all expectations are lost

As if “give a damn” burst wide open

All our cares got quickly carried off

On ripples escaping their reflections

At times I hear old echoes pleading

In an unfulfilled but anguish voice

Numbness replaces hurt over time

When time becomes our only visitor

That dresses in sunrise and sunsets

And the more visit’s, the less we hear

As a heart’s fleeting hope… disappears


Poet of the Light (c) 2022
