All That Once Was

It
was so
much
better

When
you
were
here

Holding
you
close

Pulling
you
near

Now
all
that
once
was

Has
gone
away

I’m
left
here
alone

And
that’s
not
OK

                Once Was

                they said
                he once was a musician
                he played his guitar
                and wrote songs
                love songs to be precise

                I saw him roam around the park
                smoke cigarettes
                stare at the sky and hum
                in faded ripped jeans
                bare feet
                knotted mousy hair

                he was polite and kept to himself
                never asked for money or food
                I wondered what happened to him
                one day
                I finally went up to ask him

                he told me
                he once was a musician
                played his guitar
                and wrote songs
                soggy love songs to be precise
                nowadays
                he still loved music
                and creating songs
                sad love songs to be precise
                he just couldn’t make sounds again
                with broken heart strings

                1. Oh, I adore this!!! 🖤🖤

                  Such beautiful, sorrowful and meaningful words – crafted in a way I could only aspire to.

                  I think I once knew this man… and always will in my heart 🖤🖤

                  The last line made me cry.
                  As did the sentiment of anyone writing anything with me in mind.

                  I don’t think anyone has written me a poem before.

                  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

                  🖤🖤🖤🖤
