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
