along this path….

Image by CWMartin

the sounds of the day
faded into footsteps
along a leaf covered path
each step marking
a memory to be forgotten
a love
  now gone
a child
  disowned
a death
  all too soon
a pain
  lingering too long
each step
weighing more
  than the last
somewhere
along this path
was buried a dream
a childhood fantasy
that love
could
and
would
cure all evil
but that died
long ago
now only
a poem
marks
its grave

    I guess the path can take many turns -this poem takes the turn into stark reality

    One to make the reader ponder

  2. Charles this is so very beautiful. It almost broke my heart. You truly are an awesome poet my dear friend. Your words sink deep in soul and force to think and soul search.

    somewhere
    along this path
    was buried a dream
    a childhood fantasy
    that love
    could
    and
    would
    cure all evil
    but that died
    long ago
    now only
    a poem
    marks
    its grave

    cant recollect reading something more beautiful and sad.
