marseillaises

Little windows framing lives
endless boxes piled sky high
Rosey hopes wilt
to dusty pink
etched with rusted
forlorn dreams
The sidewalk teeming
with discarded traces

of love displaced
for a quick fix
parked in the dark corners
of feigned smiles
that barely beguile
enough coins
for cab ride home

  1. Lovely poetry. Loving the way that you intertwined those words into a beautiful piece of poetry, loving the words that you have used, powerful and beautiful. Hope to see more from you. Have hope, write on!
