Shadow of a dreamer-

Shadow of a dreamer-


They killed her with their judgement,
Their stinging stares and words;
Murdered her, long before the soul-
Departed earths abode.

They stomped her dreams to rubbles,
And molded theirs with it;
A once hearty laughterΒ echoes-
sorrow buried deep.

They killed her, oh they killed her,
The girl she used to be;
The shadow of a dreamer remains-
They wonder what happened in between.
They’d killed her.

  1. Ohhhhh, this is very somber and haunting. Very powerful as well. Is this written about someone you know personally?
    Good job.
    I’m so sorry I’ve been so absent. I got very sick and then was so busy with my mother-in-law here and my husband preparing to travel to Lebanon.

      1. Oh, I’m much better now, thanks Ameena. I actually didn’t have the flu. It was a toss up between a urinary tract infection and dengue fever. Ended up being the infection.
        Thanks so much for the encouragement. You’re a sweetie.


  2. Awww sad but beautiful post. Unfortunately this is all too true…people can be very cruel with their judgement of others and they don’t realize how big of an effect it might have on that person =(.
