Dreams Shatttered - Poem by Jane H. Hu

Click here to listen to Dream Shattered It's not surprising I should see you there
In that white shirt; you smile so handsomely.
Like silver bells, she giggles flirtingly;
I know you visit those girls who live there,
In the student's guest room, light shines on your hair:
No trace of sadness, you laugh happily.
In floating skirt, I pass by silently;
My heart asks: have you seen me? Do you care?
The setting sun, like dreams and love, will fade
Away at dusk, the mist of purple sky.
I stand alone,a shadow of the tree;
The palm embraces me with leaves green as jade.
My dreams are shattered, gone with wind they fly;
A broken love, I bury deep in me...
