Far-flung daydreams, hollow words,
Angel kisses, empty verse;
But then, too quickly falling:
Not comprehending your curse.
You clung then, still so tightly
To last remnants of dear dreams
But they could never save you,
No one heard your final screams.
Like a sky-bird once soaring,
You believed that you could fly;
Until wingless and songless
You dropped listless from the sky.
Amongst heavens still so blue,
But wishes never realized—
Promises never came true.
Still the sun shines on, taunting,
With visions of gilded gold;
“Look away now, don’t heed it”—
If only you’d once been told.
