    a dream lay dying
    last gasp imminent through tear stained mirrors
    reflecting temptous decisions
    somebody call 911
    okay, whats the number?
    while the dreams thunder dissipates
    creating quake claps of wonder
    around a crowd of whispers
    telling misled fantasies denial
    a dream attempts to awaken
    before closure of the last file
    quick clamps silence effort
    a dream hushed out of existence
    turning back with no wave goodbye
    no last chance to cry
    when the ambulance came it was far too late
    a dream is dead
    piercing screams into a night cloud
    bring no relief
    i'm shaking my head
    is it really real at 17?
    aching breath wept
    sitting here with a dead dream on the right
    her positive pregnancy test on the left
    when the usual suspects are rounded up
    spotlight shines on my confession
    why didn't you use protection?
    just felt good at the time
    that time
    the moment in time
    when i didn't realize
    what really happened at the scene?
    i pulled the trigger on my dreams....

    This is so true in many cases......Victims of murder are the result of folks not wishin to live up to their responsibility...Pleading temporary insanity or memory loss to cover up their cowardice and shame...
