Where once we were
By D.L. Tillery
Through the window, I left you there, on that plain my heart laid bare.
Down the hillside my tears have run, like the blades of grass grow in sun…
What once was there yet far from you, I had a care though never fair
On the breeze our love once soared, never again, I’ve closed the door…
Yet here I am overwhelmed with thought, why did I give my heart?
Remove from me what we were,
like the stones have fallen away,
down and across the Everglades.
Wrapped in secret is the lie,
the one we’ve told and screamed to the sky,
where once we built that place called home
is nothing left but an old torn-down mess,
cold as stone. If I could go back to where
we were, I’d call for you again and again
though I know you’d never appear,
for you’ve long since passed away from here.
Now my eyes can no longer see…
Just as the place we once loved,
has come to be…
