The road sings no more to me

Those songs in your shoes.

The road sings no more to me,

Of those strangers
who never returned to the
houses of cards they built,
Of those shepherds
who wanted to steal away
those lost sheeps 
disguised as  clouds 
in  skies.

Laughs that traveled from
a  child to a man,
cries that distanced a father
from a soldier in war,
shelters in rain from leaves
with holes,
pebbles racing away  with

Those songs in your shoes 

The road now cries out to me.

of those shoes
that i walked with
that were never mine,
of those naked feet
that searches for colors
when the pallet is 
snatched away.

 feathers that flow higher
 like dreams that never have a home,
ruins that remained behind
 when castles turned to dust ,

The road now cries out to me.
