Castles Of Glass - Poem by John Bliven Morin

Castles of glass
Of milk and cobalt blue
Delicately reflecting life
In every hue

Such castles, alas
Cannot long be sustained
Of fantasy life and fantasy love
Naught remained

A life of fantasies
From childhood and my youth
A life of wishes unfulfilled
Mixed with truth

Even my memories
Are truth and lies combined
Inseparable now with time
To leave behind

    It's good but now you're getting serious and yet the frivolous still comes through. Try mine - Memory is a Cheating Thing.
