My Flickering Dreams

Broken dreams of mine,
paved path for veiled realms;
Thy broken dreams
curved thy hallow flesh.

Not in the papers
not in the bricks;
Written in the flames
of the burning wicks.

As grey as ebbing vapors in dark;
As flickering as my thoughts
wandering with gusts of fear.
Fade out like none.


Flickers lightened bush
fades in amidst the dark,
thawed the frozen rocks
healed broken souls, Unknowingly!

Every broken dream
filled an empty vessel;
Every broken dream
paved a path for life.

Nor me, Nor my dreams
are broken;
Every dream is a wick lightened
dark and thawed the frozen hearts.
