A fictional narrative of a non-fictional life.

Shattered Dreams

Rainstorm Near Sossusvlei

Twice drenched today in his lonely world,
one by weather…the other by a girl.

A seamless collapse of reality presses him,
from a once perfect mindset.

She is the destroyer of worlds,
the destroyer of hearts.

But even with such fragility and shame,
he lives on with no regrets

For now he knows all about her,
and the volatility of romance

It can’t be controlled,
can’t be maintained.

It will hurt in a second,
kill with a glance

……And the only thing worth pursuing.
