Countless

Countless:
Goodbyes
From bitter eyes,
Letters
Never sent,
Souls
To be forgotten,
Words
You never meant.

Countless:
Tears
From hollow years,
Heartaches
At the core,
Wishes
Cast aside,
Reflections
In mirrors.

Countless:
Memories
In the peripheries,
Eyes
Who’ve lost the spark,
Dreams
Now fallen nightmares,
Opportunities
Looking dark.

Countless:
Worry—
Life’s a hurry,
Regrets
I must confess,
Times
I feel I’m drowning,
Pain
I must address.

Countless:
Hopes
From the sages,
Years
Turned to ages,
Deaths
With final breaths,
Patience
Put to the test…

On and on,
I will contend,
When you start counting,
From the start,
You start
To wish there was an end.
