Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time

I kissed tears away
and took hands
when they were cold
blew the warmth
of a smile
on your face knowing
I was the perfection
you craved

and once upon a time
mistakes couldn’t cut
that deep
exposing flaws
of love mixed and mastered
over trial and error

then resentment took
your mind on this roller coaster
of choices
no longer a pick
in this fantasy draft

detached from sweet kisses
and a touch causing
eyes to dilate
subtle back rubs relaxed
spasms brought
on by our passion

your gift and curse
left washed up
on the curbs
of these dirty streets
when apologies don’t provide
leverage on this climb
back to my rightful place
in your heart
