Once Was

written by: Any1mark



What once was

Dreams danced in light

Feelings run unhindered

Life flowed like waterfalls

My spirit cascades through run off

Smiles, fertilizer of happiness

Small green sprouts looking for Sun

Tomorrow's dream a hidden plague

We call opportunity luck instead

Perchance is someone else getting it

I see hope a deflated pool

Water knows not limits

Festering problems strangle

We get caught in misery

Why someone else

Dreams we held so close

What was once, nevermore



Mark, a traveler with a working problem. I spend my time writing poetry, flash fiction, and taking pictures of the world. I have time because I'm waiting for the Ckeveland Browns to win a Super Bowl.
