Shattered dreams

Ripped apart

At the seams

From the start

Crumbling hope

Buried deep

Fraying rope

On slope steep

Vision blurs

Trembling hands

Language slurs

Dissolving sands

Even stars fade

Into the black

As choices made

Tumble and crack

Into the abyss

Every wish falls

The end is this

Oblivion calls
