"Dreams Unfulfilled"

by Jeph Johnson


Our piqued curiosity kindled

Our hopes while my mystique dwindled

With deceit all that's fleeting was mingled

With malaise and became just a symbol

For the poetic fodder I cherish;

Words wed with ideas in marriage

Soon divorce, self-destruct and perish

Yes dreams unfulfilled are nightmarish
