Showers of unfulfilled Desire

Showers of unfulfilled Desire

Showers of unfulfilled desire,

Emperor of ire

My most bitter fury.

 

Open red anger

Love-stone owner

All

I set my eyes on.

 

Promising,

Bright and beautiful.

 

Dreams, keen reality;

Welcome home

Casualty arrived,

My hope has set her eyes on setback.

 

Up,

Down.

I look lost in expectations,

I count moments of my

Unreliable tossed coin

I await for.

 

I know trust is dead,

Don’t remind me

My confidence is lost,

Dependence missing,

Faith gone astray,

Reliance lifeless,

Stock now mislaid

Hope is no where to be found.
