What could have been..

Long lost lanes
Lined with remains
Of all that could have been

Carcasses of dreams
Rotting in putrid streams
Veiled by porcelain smiles

Fragile, so fragile
Have we been made
Eaten from within
By maggots of hate

Maybe, just maybe
If we tried to wake up
We would see what could have been

Maybe, just maybe
Free from this loathing,
We’ll weave what should have been.

Until then, lost we’ll stay
Shackled in our ignorance,
Doomed to obey.
