Symbols of loss

All that’s left is

Broken glass on the side of the road

Catching the light of the night

Twisted car wreckage

About to be hauled away

A building burned

Or boarded

Symbols of memories

Dreams

Hope

Claimed by death

Failure

And fate

    I like the abruptness of this poem. It’s very clear, and subsequently, a powerful piece.

    Cheers,
