What Was Lost

Loosely Based On

I thought I loved once

But I opened more than my mind

And what fell in was

Only lust and yearnings

For what was never mine.

I tripped over wisdom

Into what I know now

And what a fall it was

As I watched innocence

Crack on lesson’s pavement.

Simplicity was in the past-

Lost in laughs in the crook

Of your elbow or smiles

Traced by youth’s touch.

Some things are lost forever

Like my memories of you.
