there was once a time

when a simple glance from you

could bring to my eyes

tears of joy

now my life

is a living testament

to all

that time can destroy

there was once a place

in my heart

where the faintest smile

on your face

could wipe away from my soul

the memory of my deepest hurt

that nothing else

could erase

there was once a loneliness

that was no more

when I was in your arms

a part of me no longer missing

now our love

is just a dying ember

of the wood of caring

the flames of hate are kissing

there was once between us

something though elusive

so special

and genuine

more than we could hope to understand

and greater

than either of us

could ever imagine.

Sadly, your verses express a theme that seems timeless in this world/life. Thank you, Pierre. Love and best wishes,

Sadder than sad...I know these emotions and they can change your life. They cut me like a knife years ago. Now I'm a skeptic when it comes to love. I hope this doesn't happen to you. Your poem is a message taken from the heart. It is where the best poems are created...from experience.
