Unlived - Poem by Kate Hutson

Too much passed is carried,
Some joy but more hurts.
Hearts filleted over years
Bleeding into the future.
Blood staining dreamlands,
Hopes aborted by ghosts.
Misty greyness clouded
By what was and may be.
Unlived, loved or heeded,
The present slips away.

    what a poem
    presenting so clearly
    the great dangers the human
    and then falls such a falling described here
    sad yet that sadness somehow for the reader
    uplifting knowing the other struggles
    a fine poem
