Poem – Consolation (By Matthew Anish)

Consolation – By Matthew Anish
Flowers fade
as we walk near
   a rapid river
the powers of
night envelop
 our consciousness
Dreams are the playing
cards we use
  to gamble with
eyes filled  with tears
  as we watched
the ship of reality
leave for foreign shores
  No, we will not have
an easy trip
  But in the end
   we’ll take solace
in the fact that we lived
  on the edge for a time
  and do not regret
