Beauty

on

She was a beautiful dream,
A dream of yesterday, a dream of tomorrow
A dream of places afar, a time that has long passed.
Wrapped in the scent of morning breeze,
She was everything I could never have.
A exuberant dream,
Of life, of meaning, of fulfillment,
A lucid dream, I chase with my eyes open,
I look from afar and cry at my incompetence,
I howl at my fate and wail at misery,
I wait and wait for the time to be right,
And with just a snap of finger everything falls apart,
I looked everywhere and she was never found,
Alas! I lost her due to my failure and cowardice.

  13. This is a great poem Nawaz of beauty that you are!
    These lines:

    “And with just a snap of finger everything falls apart,
    I looked everywhere and she was never found,
    Alas! I lost her due to my failure and cowardice”.

    I love it because she can always be found through acceptace and love with a snap of the finger.

    I especially liked “I wait and wait for the time to be right,
    And with just a snap of finger everything falls apart,” The anxiety and loss of patience that follows leaving an addiction is depicted beautifully here.
