Broken Dreams

The once lively prince now a broken king
An effervescent star now surrounded by clouds


The pilgrim wanders in a state of blindness
her secret library undiscovered hidden in the trees


Their labyrinth in between
Love in dreams and memories


Conversations deep in the imagination
Scenes that play out in the heart


Eyes forever closed
One always giving chase


Backs turned to one another
Fear and safety plays it’s part


The pilgrim now a broken queen
A once passionate star now exploring fate


The pilgrim fearful of how much more she can carry
For her losses have been great


Her feet are weary and she wonders
Where is home?


Time can seem so much longer when one wish
continues to build up energy


Silent whispers and a glimpse of hope
Surface thoughts only mask for so long


Communication broken
Unless of the heart


A cord somewhat damaged
Binding connection


Keeping them together
As one is always pulled back up from the edge of uncertainty


For the broken king and queen
May have always been


Yet which one is too afraid to realize the truth of
how long one can sustain a life on broken dreams?
