Abandoned Man

Empty corridors of past unfulfilled

Steps sound the arrival of a failed man

No wonder the emptiness dances gloating

Smug face pulled on by the faith

It played the game of life like poker

Bluffed, and raised the stakes so great

A man had everything in one brief moment

Imminent future revealed that he failed

So the corridors are empty

yet somehow the mist recites a poem

How the corridors were full in a brief moment of luck

That abandoned the man when he stood up to go home
