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


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.
