Poems and Poetry

Life on the Cutout Rack | A Poem by Roy Pullam

In the shadows of dreams
There is a moment
Of reality
When attaining
The heart’s wish
Is followed
With the question
Is that all?
When success
Seems like failure
When the most beautiful
Song sounds stale
To the ear
When more
Becomes less
When acclaim
Becomes an anchor
And success
Becomes quicksand
When everyone
Expects more
