A Path of Mourning

A Wall of Desire

followed by a 

Path of Mourning. 

You didn’t honestly 

believe

did you? 

No. 

Of course not. 

But-

perhaps this is why 

your dreams crumbled

like ash 

before turning eyes

and the first person 

who told you 

you weren’t good enough, 

even though you spent 

countless nights, 

awake, barely breathing, 

memorizing the ins and outs

of your passion only 

to have a bulldozer of words

bury the hope you held so high

leaving you stranded, 

on a Path of Mourning.
