Poetically Expressing Myself - Daylight

 

Daylight

I chew on the crust of a
broken dream.
Trying to follow the crumbs
back to the beginning.

When did it become a fairy tale?
A fable?
A tall tale of adventure in the woods,
lost and alone,
instead of revelation?

I face the wolf of failure
with an axe of my own.
It is not a quick end but it is
quick enough.

I see with daylight
in my vision.
Bringing this dream to
an end.
