Dust on my shoes

This street is dull
Sweeps particles of dust along it’s pavements

Onto my shoes,
Dirty laces through eyelets of tired leather

The park once bloomed
Faces of unknown lovers wishing upon the fountain

And I played a song
The strange tune of a forgotten guitar

Hearts came alive
The warmth of thunderous clapping delighted my soul

That I came each day
To pull the strings of that same guitar

Days fell in and out
Hearts walked in and out

Never returned
These piles of little scrolls of unread poetry

The dust between the lines
On every letter,

The tiny pieces of my heart
Maybe I am just another beggar on the street

Maybe my journey came this far and here it ends
Maybe I only need to dust my shoes

Add yours

  1. Just brushed the dust from between the lines
    All your letters now sparkle, a joy to read
    To busk is not begging, play on, show off your talent
    Write on, play on, were all waiting
    Paint with your words, then add them to your music
    The words will prance your public dance, and applaud
    All accolades, in appreciation, in elation
    Don.t ever put ones self down, stand tall
    Enjoy life, enjoy the ball, dance your words out
