NaPoWriMo 2014 – Day 24

Aspirations

Empty smile
Burned at both ends
Where dreams come
Withered and dried
In support of someone
Someone else’s aspirations
Say no a thousand times over
Still naked, bleeding
Beg for the dreams to be born
Anew from their demise
Empty smile burned
Burdened at both ends
Where dreams are dead
In favor of aspirations brought
Bought by another’s demands
