Poem As these years go

As these years go

Unfulfilled dreams exposed

All these doors close

How many are left

I do not know

Like so much else

Completely out of my control

Like unblocked skin

Turning into a sun burned soul

It burns like paper

Sucked up into the air

Nothing is spared

I watch as

The ashes slowly fall

All around me
