Broken Dreams

guitar-3131893_1280
Eyes as bright as the bluest of sky
a laugh that lit up a dreary room
No one saw the black darkness
lurking in the shadows of
that captivating smile
but all the while
you were fighting
demons, no rest
for your soul
until they
won.

 
When
it finally
happened and the
demons had their say
Sprawled out all akimbo
with a gun by your broken soul
the good you left behind, beautiful music
playing on in an efficacy of delicate
memories sung in a darkened
nightclub bursting with broken dreams
what it must mean to be gone,
and yet, remembered
with a song.
