My Broken Dream

My Broken Dream

A Poem by Anna
"

Broken dreams, broken people.

"

You're my broken dream,

that lives beneath me throughout my waking hours,

That haunts me throughout the night, and rips at my seams,

I cry a silent story,

That no one tends to keep.

My sadness is frozen,

That slithers and creeps,

I fill a lake of tears,

That pulls on my happiness,

While I swim in my fears.

In a river of no progress.

I feel ignorant and young,

Stupid and hurt.

My skin shivers, and tears stain my torn shirt.

A world of so much beauty,

Began my day of bliss,

Now I stare straight at the walls,

And forget about my wish.

I listen and love,

but never truly surrendered to the pain,

But my drive is slowly crumbling,

I feel I can't sustain.

I sleep, tangled in my sheets,

You're my falling, broken dream,

It's time I  call it quits

It's time I claim defeat.
