When Dreams Fade Away (Collaboration)

My contribution to a collaborative poem by Neha from the blog, ForgottenMeadows

You can find the entire collaboration here

***********

When it all fades to black

Like the end of a motion picture,

Despair morphing into a beast

Looking to take control

Distorting my peripheral vision

Chewing a bigger fraction of my pie chart …

I, in turn,

Hunt like a blood hound

For what is rightfully mine,

I grip the collar of my dreams

Put them on a leash,

Make them recite my name

Till they realize they are not aligned

With anything or anyone except me,

In a world as cruel as ours,

When fighting for the good of others

Vying for justice,

Being gentle can only last so long.

  1. Dark and I liked the underlying feel of sexual tension.
    Fave lines- “Put them on a leash, Make them recite my name”

    Hope you’ll swing over for a visit. -Fallen
