 I knew her once!

I thought I knew who I was today but I failed to see the point.

I was thinking of rhymes and forgot the time that I used to do this for fun. 


When I remembered the past and how I used to laugh at the amazing words dancing in space, 

I burst into memory full and so clear of the woman that I once had loved. 

What happened to her? 


It wasn't the kids or the work that took place for food, shelter and care... 

It was the nastiness of, a husband cut off from his feelings and it led to despair... 

Demanded was I to cease being me or the courts would make me pay large... so I turned off my heart not to tear it apart and cocooned like a worm in a tree... 


10 years have passed and I am finally back... discovering the essence of peace... writing and wishing and dreaming and fishing for words that will never defeat..    


I knew you once.. the one that I loved

I knew you twice... you really were loved

I knew you deeply... and you were my friend

I knew you once... let's meet again
