Requiem for a Dream

Shabby, she prayed her hands
in mock pursuit of something dreamed
Alone, she coughed
to clear her throat of the taste of failure
Crying, she upheld her arms
and gestured at the high god
to do something for which
nothing could be done
Helpless, she fled
the dark tunnel of her dreams,
abandoned, without a fate
