In the blink of an eye
As time went by
I listened to musings,
Those inner whisperings
Of lost romances,
Missed chances,
Those agonies
The glories and the furies.
Shadowy moments
A curtain over my heart
I trod the wasteland of broken pledges
Despair to the edges
Of my being
O life elusive,
Wither scatter thou moments
Gathered with every breadth I take?
Life is pain
Lived in vain
Every morrow
Filled with sorrow.
The agonies, the glories and furies shall be no more
For life is death !
