no longer longingMature

history drags its heels
through long nurtured dreams
tortured schemes
wrung of each last detail
strain to maintain them
far fetched plans far far away
have faded from distanced thoughts along the way
and each resurgent hopeful flourish
only proceeds this dismal crash

yesterday my hope gave in
subside beneath heaped reasoning:
your plans and faith and fairness.
no future lurks in gumtree shade
so surrendered powerful love
left in frosty footpaths then
hotels and lay-bys, hot and weeping

colder now, with disappointment

The End
