Lonely Shadow Cast (standard:poetry, 126 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Jul 26 2011Views/Reads: 1724/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Life can get lonely and sometimes our dreams will reflect it...

Flashing neon signs 

Dark pavement left behind 

But more to go 

I know, I know 

I've darkness on the mind 

Absorbed in mind's cafe 

I take a seat to say, 

“This can't be mine 

This dream I find 

Is taken course dismay” 

Now gather in good cheer 

Partake in lifeless beer 

Glasses empty 

Patrons gone 

Myself I've come to fear 

But how this came to pass 

I cannot say at last 

I turn to go 

But now I know 

I can't reshape my past 

Walk on in dream I do 

But lifeless forms ensue 

A mother gone 

A father too 

But empty streets pursue 

I've taken now the task 

To live this dream at last 

Without my wish 

Or to my hope 

A lonely shadow cast
