|What Once Was|
|by Libby M|
|The world can pass on by|
No one will know I existed.
Many can claim they’ve heard
Me whisper-but they won’t know
If it ever was factual or, just a simple dream.
Dream-I used to dare
I no longer do-Instead
I watch the starry night
As the stars glisten.
I begin to wonder
About the day I once felt alive.
Alive-I used to feel
I no longer do, for he took
All of me-and left me only
With dead memories.
He took away my precious Heart
And laughed as I faced my agony.
Misery welcomed me with open arms,
I should be grateful, For
It was the only place that can take me,
That can help me rest for as long As
No one heard, no one saw
It all started the day he chose to walk away
He promised me the world-but he failed
To bring the world to me.
World-Isn’t the place I desire now
Rather heaven-the garden of my dreams.
I long to be there-not here with the rest
That looks like me.
I sigh as million thoughts run through my head
Like the ocean rush-like the cold breeze air passing through.
I ache-My heart aches-the deepest parts of me ache as I think of that day.
I heard you weep-I felt your vulnerability
And I sat on the edge of my bed-hopeless.
I heard you whisper the words so many times-
But I became num after you served me with the wicked truth.
We are over-But I love You still-Please always remember.
Remember-I will only remember You as a shadow-
A shadow passing through-a shadow of the past-
A shadow I barely can recognize-I will only remember you
As a dream-a long wasted dream-
That’s what I will take with me-
That’s what you will become-
Though one thing I will always remember-
And that is, A cheating soul
Will always be A cheating Soul-
It will never be contented-
It’s beating heart will always be searching for
That’s what I will always
Take with me, As I will think of You
