Once upon a time…

A time there once was
When
The moon hung low
Each blade of grass
Intimate silver
We joined in the night air

 

A time there once was
When
Hands clasped
Our invincible selves
Paraded avenues of
Unfettered promise

 

A time there once was
When
We danced, whirled and sang
Encased in a homely cocoon
Fire glowing warmly
Reflecting sunny faces

 

A time there once was
When
We buried our noses
In soft warm fuzz
Inhaling the scent of
New life

 

A time there once was
When
The tart taste of bitterness
Crept into each day
Resentment the vernacular
Poison to contentment

 

A time there once was
When
A line of flames
Crackling and consuming
Scorched the earth
Between us

 

A time there once was
When
We spat venomous barbs
Disrespect coloured all
Anger became fury and
Uncertain fear

 

Once upon a time…

 

There was us
Now there is

You

Me

Separate entities
A promise of moons hung low
