Fallen Stardust

Digging your toes

into sands of my soul,

now both lost in medley,

with no roots to call our own


Where no cars go,

and no bodies crawl;

let’s sail to those shores

promising a life beyond


This juggling of feelings,

all for emotional adderall.

No wonder we’re stuck

in this ephemeral world’s con


Sombre faces often expose

humble thoughts of every prole,

veiled in a cranial garb are

luscious dreams they thorned


In backwaters of sweat and tears

a reflection shines on a shoal,

of a shape once much adored,

fading now ……… obscured.
