Disappointment is the wrong shade of blue,
When the skies of magic azure,
Are reflected and seen
In the muddy-brown creek.

Disappointment is a song sung ten times,
With subtle demise
Of heavenly music remains,
Pretty chords and several refrains.

Disappointment is a beaming smile,
Of beauty and love a mile,
So full and so true, one has to stare,
Then see in those eyes a blank glare.

Disappointment is a saga that makes one live
In it while reading, while it still gives
Its splendor, but it can’t last forever, you see,
The last page was turned, yet questions do stay.

And today?
Disappointment was you.

This flowed out after I realized I was bitterly disappointed after something I wanted and feared did not happen.

I totally understand! I've done the same quite a few times! Sometimes it seems I just can't compromise what I've written to follow the rules. I think we've all been there

Thanks for reading! It seemed to me that the first stanza did, kind of rhyme, just not very well; I just really liked the words I had, and would have been traumatized if I had changed them :)

This is beautiful and I can really feel your emotion in this piece. It felt a tad odd that it started rhyming the 2nd stanza in, but I really enjoyed it!
