More than Once in a While

More than Once in a While

A Poem by Yuvia Chairez
"

Poem inspired by the song "Once in a While" by Kasey Chambers.

"
If I wasn't what you wanted
If I wasn't even close
I only hope that I made you smile...
Maybe more than once in a while...
- Kasey Chambers

"Close the courtains", you said once,
And made love to me under the dim light of a tv screen,
While listening to someone selling dreams
For ninety-nine cents a minute, or even more.

I never thought I would look back at those moments
And smile at the sight of your tears
When I turned and walked away.
I never realized how deep the cut had been
until it was too late.

How blessed are those who forgive, forget, and renew!
For I am walking in the rain downtown,
Thinking of how many times I wished I'd never met you
For the sole reason that the freedom you took away,
Was the only thing that past lovers had left behind.

The poem is amazing. The beginning lines started off slow and easy. Then you took us a road trip of hell and pain. The last lines twisted me up some. I like the ending. A excellent poem.
