Thud Of Disappointment

When the blow of disappointment hits your chest.
The thud stuns you.

It buckles every sensation of hope you have held.
Shatters your dream.

At the moment that disappointment shows its face.
Everything changes.

It banishes the future into the exile of stark reality.
Turns you inwards.

The broken expectations fracture under the surface.
Purple bruises spread.

A dull ache of foolishness arises with reactive force.
Sadness seeps out.

Silent acceptance may patiently wait for you close by.
Ready to sooth.

But discovering how this thud of disappointment
Might just hold a hidden and unforeseen purpose,
Will take more time.
