Once by Anne G at Spillwords.com



written by: Anne G



Once upon a tender time

when life was sweet

and you were mine

when days were long

and nights sublime

our love grew strong

we knew no wrong

we lived as if in Camelot


Then came the time

when doubt crept in

cracks appeared

the painting peeled

serenity no longer reigned

the fairytale ceased to exist

love turned to dust and disappeared

once upon a Camelot



Camelot is a castle and court associated with the legendary King Arthur.

Camelot first appeared in 12th-century French romances.

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
