Broken Dreams


Walking thru my memories, Reliving all the pain.
Viewing the destruction of all the endless days.
Lost in the agony with nothing left to gain.
I feel my heartbeat fading, there's nothing left to say.
Pieces of my broken dreams, lying on the floor.
Resentment slowly building, darkening the light.
Drowning in my sorrow, I can't take it anymore.
Feeling faith desert me, extinguishing my life.
Then I feel you wrap around me, whispering in the dark.
Telling me to not give up, reaching deep within my heart.
Searching for the pieces, of my broken dreams.
Asking of me, to just let it go.
Confusion clouds my mind, gripping me with fear.
I collapse into myself, the pain within me grows.
I hide myself away, from the comfort that I hear.
How can I relinquish, all I've ever known.
Could it be so simple, just to let it drift away.
Hopelessness has ruled me, for so very long.
Is it God, or is it Death? I know I've lost my way.
Does it really matter? As long as it is gone.
Again I feel you wrap around me, whispering in the dark.
Telling me to not give up, reaching deep within my heart.
Searching for the pieces, of my broken dreams.
Asking of me, to just let it go.
The fantasy is over, the wonder's gone away.
Disillusion has set in, Reality calls my name.
The perfect love I felt inside, slowly fades to gray.
Leaving me to suffer, the pain of broken dreams.
You wrap yourself around me, shelter in the dark.
Telling me to not give up, I'm giving you my heart.
Giving you the pieces, of my broken dreams.
Trusting in your love, to help me let it go.

And I probably should NOT have read this one.

Looking for Penguin Conspiracy to snap me out of it....

Which means it touched you deeply....don't worry Gayle....
in time, things will get better.

May not seem like it now..but they will.

When I wrote this one, I didn't think they would, but things have gotten better for me.....
