Shop of Broken Dreams

I visted the shop of broken dreams
And everything I dreamed about was there
but each was broken, had parts missing,
Was in a state of disrepair.
This is a place where people say "come visit,
Everything you wanted is still here."
But what they didn't tell you when you visit
Is that they were not quite sincere.

They did not tell you there's commission
In shifting product from the shelves,
That window shopping is no option
Because there is a rent on where one delves,
That they will take the entrance charges
And pocket all the change themselves.

    Are you Swiss or just living there? My mother was from Bern & I have cousins in Zofingen. You can email me at, if you wish. Loved your poem. Danielle

    This is a very interesting poem. It seems that hidden charges are all over the place. There are times when we are forced to ask all sorts of questions to protect our welfare. I can see the nuances in this piece. Great job and welcome to Poetry Soup! ~Joseph
