Line In The Sand

Line In The Sand

A Poem by A.Lee

those unreachable goals....


There’s a line drawn in the sand

Its nearly half way down the road

Its not too far and its not uphill

But never can I get close


I’ve yearned to reach it all my life

To finally gain your love

But every time I’m almost there

You quickly give me a shove


You move the line so far away

That its nearly out of sight

Then fold your arms across your chest

“Just when will you get it right?”


I shake my head in such despair

As I chase impossible dreams

Dreams you hate that I don’t fulfill

Yet make sure I will never reach

As usual, nothing special. Just thoughts.

Very heartfelt and beautiful. I love the analogy for line in the sand. Not only is it unreachable but easily destroyed as well. Great write.

Short and simple, yet oh-so-compelling. Another wonderful insight into your soul. I'm sorry that your life has not been very fair to you.

This is good, images about the frustration of seeing what we want but we just can't quite reach it. What happens when we do? Nice job.

Beauty of your writing lies in your ability to translate your emotions and feelings in a simple way….
Such a simplicity…that helps your message …to reach into the mind of the reader very soon …and linger there…for a long time…
Really a nice read..
