A Poem by Kira Fulks



That was then
and now it’s over all that was is gone for good the honey days and stinking clovers drifted by as well they should. Now time trickles slowly by forming spikes and stalactites in that frozen cave you call your heart. That was then And now it’s over there’s no more time for me to brood all that was is gone forever that was then and now it’s Heaven. * ©Yakira Shimoni Fulks June 4, 1998 | Graymoor, IL update February 22, 2020 | OC California

Superb Kira. Lovely and perfectly chosen images to portray love gone sour and worse. Honey days and stinking clovers tells how love can turn to poison. The frozen cave you call your heart is a great image. These affairs can drag on but hopefully release and heaven the reward.
Love is a learning curve and it can be a rough ride.
All the best

A rather sombre tone with a flavour of sad reflecting acceptance as love that once seemed certain slips away. The ending seems to have two directions, one the protagonist simply now wishes death or has found contentment in the space and freedom.
