WHAT WAS ONCE BEAUTIFUL

April 17, 2018

I was at a stand-still

 

My heart pounding

My fist folded

My head pounding from thinking how I ended up back here.

 

We were there.

Hopeless and burdened

Shook and burdened.

I was at a lost for words

I Remember I was your weekend

I knew the pleasure of not being valued.

I was at a lost for words

 

When I remembered your fevered touch,

the butterflies your words gave me,

and the trust your eyes secured.

 

The feeling of doom was renewed

every time I looked deep into your eyes.

I carried your scars,

I carried your pain,

I carried our scars.

 

The feeling of doom was renewed

When I knew it was all too good to be true.

I was fool,

But I loved you too.

I was a love struck fool,

But I loved you too.

 

I was your weekend.

Our brick house romance was short lived.

I took a dive,

I'm glad I survived.

I was at a lost for words,

 

When I remembered your fevered touch,

the butterflies in my stomach

and the trust in your eyes.

 

The feeling of doom was renewed

When I realized I was your vacation.

We were both doomed,

Star crossed lovers.

 

I carried your pain,

I carried your scars

Again and again and again.

 

I broke the chains,

Released the shackles of your love

I broke the chains

I gather my gains and left your love

As time required my behove.

I ran and ran.

And finally,

 

I’m at a standstill

My heart pounding

My head pounding from thinking how I ended up here

Broken from what was once beautiful.
