Mess of dreams
Disastrous hopes
Years of walking on water
Lives of stepping on glass
Races of time
And buckets of stress
Darkness in the laughter
Light in the tears
Lost wishes
Made on shining stars
Luck hidden in rainbows
Pens drip black ink
Lined paper with useless words
Diaries filled with lies
Tick tock. Time's running out.
Clouds are turning gray
Sun burning out
Moons already gone
Trash on the street
Money in the machine
Stitches in shirts
Holes in your jeans
Book spines never been cracked
Light bulbs never glowing
Songs never danced too

Unopened windows to unknown worlds
Trashed ideas like litter
Wind doesn't blow anymore
Blue skies are just smog.
