Shards

The shards of
shattered dreams
glisten
in the light of the mocking
moon

I walk along the
beach
(carefully)
amidst the wreckage
and the ruin

Forgotten
or discarded
are these dreams

Precise pain
pierces
me as I cut
my foot
on someone else’s
unrealized
dream

I listen
to the ocean
as it gently
caresses
the shore
and am happy to realize
my dreams are
still
intact
