The Ivory Gate Of Dreams VII. Aquiescence
Betrayed by innocence

Deceived by delusions

Plagiarized promises

Pale into empty hopes.



Ivory towers bow down

In reverence to daylight

As dreamers awaken

In sleepers somber shade.



Ocean Waves shift leaving

Only memories.

Final traces of hope

Are swallowed in the deep.



Despair sends a certain calm

A vague sense of relief

Released from all our longings

Silently we'll sleep.



Hope leads to quiet desperation

When reality obscures the dream

Makes the mind a grave of memories

That wander like the lonely breeze

Whose whispers echo through ruins rust

Of towers torn and dreams turned to dust.
