Disturbing Whispers




Farewell sunrise                                     
Adieu sunset
Though you shaln't plead
Am no more drawn to your velvet

I care no more for
All your silver,
The gold's glitter,
Nor the beats of hearts' shiver

Hold your chords
Whisper not aloud
Decades and countless
Futile lullabies later, 

Lastly found dreams
Worth sleeping for

    1. No 'sleeping for'. There was no point in living in a world of unfulfilled dreams
