Foretell

Foretell

Hope spreads thin between your days

a distant light that fades at times

evaporating within your fingers,

and seeds you plant sprout in vines

that chokes your life and leaves a haze

while dreams in shadows linger.

~

And liquid hope your lips will touch

in brief reprise from all the pain

that may dissolve within your death,

and all you did you did in vain

if living once you lived too much

as hope becomes one final breath.

 .

      Many times I write about others I encountered in my life. Her story is sad and real and it touched me. Thank you for taking time to read 🙂
