Ruins, My Shattered Dream

-

Each lingering footstep

In the calm

Of a forever placid tune

Leaves behind remnants

Bits and pieces

That will soon be

Gone and eternally

Lost amidst the dust

-

I was a wanderer

Walking down

Those broken hallways

Never once looking back

Alone,

Searching for an illusion

Following a trail

That lead to no conclusion

Traveling within a maze

Of cluttered emotions

Blinded by fate's

False promises

-

Don't stop

Each lingering step

Don't choose

To let yourself forget

That dream,

Was lost in the ruins

So now, the memories

Are the only things

You have left.
