When Childhood Would Last Forever

When we were just five years old

We carried the world in our hands

Nothing left to figure out

Nothing left to understand

Everything made sense back then

 

But then the universe spun suddenly

And our hearts broke apart

With reality slapping our faces

We were left right back at the start

What happened to all of our innocent works of art

 

You’ll never have friends

Like the ones when you were five

When your naivety wasn’t yet

Stabbed through with a jagged knife

When decisions weren’t a puzzle missing every piece

When you were the master in life

Not one grey teardrop spilling from your eye

Everything either black or white

When you knew everything every day and night

 

You’ll remember they’re names

Even if they’re smile blurs and fades

The playground wars, the cookie parties

All of the memories that you made

 

When the real world had no hold on you

And your friends swore they’d stay

Never knowing how far apart you grew

With every aging day

 

You’ll never have friends

Like the ones when you were five

When your naivety wasn’t yet

Stabbed through with a jagged knife

When decisions weren’t a puzzle missing every piece

When you were the master in life

Not one grey teardrop spilling from your eye

Everything either black or white

When you knew everything every day and night

 

So take one day to reminisce

When you were five years old

Remember when you thought you were made of gold

When your mom and dad were king and queen

And you were a princess in your kingdom home

 

When childhood would last forever

And your toys came to life

When right and wrong were for the better

And Santa Claus was real with all your might

 

You’ll never have friends

Like the ones when you were five

When your naivety wasn’t yet

Stabbed through with a jagged knife

When decisions weren’t a puzzle missing every piece

When you were the master in life

Not one grey teardrop spilling from your eye

Everything either black or white

When you knew everything every day and night

thank you for reading!
I really like this. It has a simple truth and bit of an emotional impact to it. It's very good. I'm glad you posted it in the group writing. :)

I wish I had the words right now to comment on this. You have packaged about 115 of my poems into this considerate trip through YOUR childhood, realizing that we all share similar adventures, likes, and memories. They are not easily seen when we are kids from our view inside the sandbox or through our bedroom windows watching the other neighborhood kids skipping in the rain just outside!! You are beautiful RachelReaper and I love how you write about these kinds of "nostalgia" with care and respect to how pure they are in retrospect!! xoxo -Mark

So true! I love the Santa Clause part, I think I almost miss not believing in him... before people mentioned he sounds like a stalker... but I used to think of him more as Father Christmas from Narnia.
