    You've stood high on the mountain top
    The strange sensation as you drop
    You've lost the only friend you had
    Things go from worse and then to bad
    Just feel the pain, it makes you wince
    You lose control of common sense
    You've just been dealt a crummy hand
    Your cup of life is filled with sand

    A BROKEN BOTTLE BOTTLE, CANT BE REDEEMED
    NO BOILING WATER, WITHOUT SOME STEAM
    BUT NOTHING'S SADDER THAN, ONE WHO'S LOST HIS DREAM

    You tried to bUy some hapiness
    But life is real with no finess
    From shining star, into a dud
    How does it feel there in the mud?
    So poor you look, so out of place
    Your friends are laughing in your face
    Pent up with hate, they look so grim
    Remember when you laughed at them?

    SUCH PRECIOUS TIME, HOW IT WAS WASTED
    A BITTER VETCH, BABY CANT YOU TASE IT?
    BUT NOTHING'S SADDER THAN, ONE WHO'S LOSE HIS DREAM

    Life came so easy as a child
    But you cant cope, the world is wild
    To scared to stop, or start again
    A spirit broken just gives in
    You find yourself, there in the street
    The mind is spent, the body weak
    You wonder how much you can take
    The chips are down, life gives no break

    YOUR PRETTY RAINBOW HAS LOST IT'S GLEAM
    THE MILK IS SOURED, JUST CURDDLED CREAM
    BUT NOTHING'S SADDER THAN, ONE WHO'S LOST HIS DREAM

    [INTERLUDE]

    LOST PRECIOUS TIME, CANT BE REPEATED
    EVERYONE GETS PAID, YOU JUST GET CHEATED
    NOTHING'S SADDER THAN, ONE WHO'S LOST HIS DREAM

    What are we without our dreams? No hope, no visions of the future, no life. You painted this grim picture masterfully, poet.

    The words you write are sad yet
    so very true. This is a well written piece.

    Much Luv
