Yesterdays Shattered Dreams

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


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,

that build to a crescendo because of –

yesterdays shattered dreams…
