What Is It?

Broken heart
Painful to the eyes
Distant memory
Is it?

Childhood trauma
Prophecy of doom
Unprocessed, unrecognised
Is it?

A road to hell
Disguised as heaven
Is it?

A huge fall from the high
Lost hopes
Round and around
Is it?

Too much to believe
Too much to bear
Is it?

Devastated house
No heat, No food
A barren floor
Is it?

Devoid of justice
Negligence of the court
Hopeless nights
Is it?

Victim to war
Bodies turned into smoke
Beneath a silent blue sky
Is it?

Frail flesh and bones
Organic and malignant
Is it?

Regretful past
Ghastly hereafter
Is it?

Insufficiency, inadequacy
Mediocrity amid the sterile
Is it?

A travel far away
Into the recesses of time
Counting the cobwebs
Is it?

By the circle of life
Or mutual providence
Is it?

Helpless attempts to change past
Footnotes of the sighs
Is it?

Strangled promises
Wave of nostalgia
Silent sobs
Is it?

A worse sentence
A ghostlier life
A forbidden smile
Is it?

And you say
You cannot tell.
