Once I Loved
Three months gone, barley did I notice
wrapped in grief, mrs holiday, helps to
dwell in moods, good morning heartache
anthem offers no reprieve.
Watch as lovers cuddle on subway car, dagger
pricks my heart, ministering more misery,
find myself alone again wonder where you are
pass the stop my joy did reside, residue
of memories, cascades through my mind,
emotional fatigue, replaces zest for life,
things don't look the same, once I loved so
strong, now I tend my lonely garden, waiting
for rains retreat.
