Where O where

Where o where
where are the dreams beloved?

The dreams they are
all broken at the seams
like spent mattresses’
on which we dreamed.

Where o where
where are the secrets we held ?

The secrets they are
all torn apart
like little doll’s dresses
open naked bare .

Where o where
where are the songs we sing ?

The songs they are
all echoing melodies
from mind’s empty pots
too eager to please.

Where O where ?
the day the night
Where O where ?
the way the light.
Where O where ?
the umpteen things that
delight?

All scattered over earth
sea and skies
like ashes
in its final flight.

    Where o where
    where are the dreams beloved?

    The dreams are all
    open at the seams
    like spent mattresses’
    on which we dreamed.

    Where o where
    where are the secrets we held ?

    The secrets they are
    all laid bare like little dolls,
    their dresses ripped open
    naked and bare.

    Where o where
    where are the songs we sing ?

    The songs they are
    all lost in the wind
    from mind’s empty pots
    too eager to please.

    Where O where ?
    the day the night
    Where O where ?
    the way the light.
    Where O where ?
    the umpteen things that
    delight?

    All scattered over earth
    sea and skies
    like ashes
    in its final flight.
