Shattered Dreams


Kathryn Charak

I had great ambitions,
wonderful hopes
unbreakable dreams.

I am lost in myself
in that vision of dreams,
burst into flames,
ripped at the seams.

The haze is so thick I can barely see through.

Wondering why
Wondering how
Looking for you.

I see within myself
that I may not survive.

The agonizing pain and endless fear
tear through my body
in its entirety
while summoning my soul
like flowers to the rain.

When I awake
everything is clearer.

I can see the colors of life fade
and everything turn white.

If this is Heaven
and I have arrived,
then why am I
still full of fear
