Etched across the glass
lay the shattered life
in whole, broken and lifeless
love was but, a sweet respite
that wished good luck, and
waved goodbye

Searing thoughts of
failure…circulate inside
as brave facades faded
like sand castles, on a high-tide.

When the sky looked hazy
he knew, he dried
the tears barren
like dew on a desert night
where did they go?

Comforting thoughts
were only as good as
moist wind, flown across
the barren lands.
Useless and untidy.

When the haze settled
and glass shatters
all that is left
is Sand slippin through

Your existence called life…

      Thank you. Life sometimes throws some huge failures at us. The only thing to do is to lament for a while and move on.

      Thank you. It is a good style but, a little tedious because you have to keep finding the relationships/connections that people can visualize and immerse themselves.
