Flooded Dreams!

Sitting at the banks of a flooded hope,

I lust for feeling

As I watch it wash to a murky flow,

in its majestic ruin


I’ve aged in solitude,

Grieving the departure of my hopes,

severance of my dreams…


As I lust

lust for meaning,

as life turns to dusk

Sitting at the banks of a flooded hope.


My eyes glazed at the bare horizon

As stubborn as this infinite run,

This flooded river,

Still wishful…


That some day

at the mercy of hopefulness,

As I watch this crumbling majesty to dust…

View On Black

the children of tomorrow

Would remember an old man

And his insignificant, lustful dreams…

At the banks of a flooded hope!
