Echoes of A Broken Glass

Echoes of a Broken Glass –

of a broken glass
endless journey
to a splintered path

in hidden caves
with blue sunsets
and purple waves

of a forgotten face
the world will always be
a lonely place

To those
who thread
in shattered

and still
the songs
of yesterday.

  1. So beautiful, as It tells about the lonesome Road still ahead for Those living in The past… And It does With captivating rhythm, taKing us Where it belongs, to a place where one becomes aware of the loneliness the past offers when nostalgia takes you over. If memories makes one feel sorrow, then he must admit, better don’t look back. But i Love Songs of yesterday, though, because they bring Back a lot of joy for me.

            3. after the breakup.

              Oh, we always remember the happy songs, but we keep returning to the sad ones too. Happy songs are memorable but the sad ones are always unforgettable. I wonder why?

            4. It did take some learning to do..
              because I do hang on a lot to things… and to memories… letting go is always so hard for me to do… so I just used a different approach.. where I can have the best of both worlds….

    1. Yesterday is one of the Beatles’ beautiful songs. One memorable line “Oh I believe in yesterday.”
      Song evokes sadness.
      I understand why it’s not your favorite.

      Thanks Bea for dropping by.

    1. Yes, what makes it sad is the fact that you can’t turn back the clock.

      The good times you can’t indulge on its sweetness, no matter how you relive the moment. It’s never the same, while the bad times you can’t change it, no wonder there’s regret.

      Just like that quote from The lion King movie; “Oh yes, the past can hurt you but you can either run from it, or learn from it.”

      Thanks Maniparna for stopping by and leaving your thought here. Appreciate it.

  3. Hi Joel thanks for liking my post. I was musing today why it was so hard to let go of the past? I personally wondered why I couldn’t just enjoy the several hugs I shared with my sons withough misering about the hugs I never got from my parents and may never get as is. Is that misery so loves company it’ll rather wire you to that train? Your poem is so lovely and true… I just resolved to let go of several painful memories ans keep only the good ones. E.g, it was dad who bought me several books as a kid I was simply spoilt in that domain 馃檪
