Forgotten by Time


Passed by….

a cesspool of hopeless stares

and forgotten glances….

A sepia life,

spellbound to the sadness

and loss within…

Mile after darkening mile

drifts in and out of memory

no differently

than these tracks…

On a rail line…

That no one travels

any more…

And the only glimmer of hope…

Is in the eyes

of those…

who are just…

  1. Yes sad David 😦 but the “glimmer of hope in the eyes of those passing through” …. they are bursts of potential – and thank God for them…. wonderful poetry and so fitting a photo too xo
