+ Fav Poet


In my darkest hour, the light runs away
I stumble to find my way home
The hope that used to guide me
no longer shines.

Not even a flicker to tempt me, to entice me
My dreams no longer have a voice
Like shadows they lay silent, transparent
A reality I can't touch.

A stale breeze fills my nostrils
leaving me in a melancholy heap
of hopelessness.
My purpose is but a bitter lie

    Larry,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
