Dreams are smashed
in a dusty basement bright bulbs
shine, revealing the clots of dirt
on a carpet woven by grime.
The audacity they've to shine,
to melee with shadows, at darkness
not ever flickering.
For such hope it is sad that
shadows are more like man,
and crush the bulbs with
numb hands.

Wow. This is a really amazing poem. I just tagged this as one of my favorites! I like the flow of the poem and the imagery and the wording. And I love how you portrayed crushed dreams in such an original way! Never seen a poem like this one! :)
