Wandering Words

New Year
Same fear
Dreams tossed
Love lost
Dreams turned
Love spurned

Shattered dreams
Mind screams
Bloodied knife
Widowed wife
Dogs howl
Smells foul

Poisoned wood
Starved of food
Rivers dry
Glassy eye
Burning grass
Blocked path

Hallowed ground
Never found
Frozen time
Same old rhyme
Rhythm jilted
Words stilted

Razor’s edge
Cliff ledge
Learn to fly
Riding high
Floating down
Rushing ground

Eyes open
Words spoken
Fresh dawn
New morn
Awake again
Nightmare ends
