Dearly Departed

by Zaki

intriguing voices have
become too loud noises
screams of passion turned to tiresome snores
lost in love`s ever turning gateway
unable to salvage
nostalgic remnants from the time
enclosed in a forgotten capsule
buried beneath unfulfilled
still lurking in this darkness
still searching
seeking to be
amid the collage of turmoil
full disclosure of the worst
in lieu of fairy tale fantasies
unsubstantiated in reality
cause and effect
relations strained
how to much to lose
not much to gain....
