Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time

A Poem by TheOther

Sitting on the balcony,
aroma of the night.
We used to dream together,
we aimed for the stars.

Once upon a time...
We sang to the tunes of the world.
We danced to the heartbeats of love.
We knew how to fly.

Once upon a time,
we runned through the fields and skies.
We climbed trees and played like childs do.
We were blessed.

Once upon a time,
We looked each other in the eye,
without fear nor guilt
and we could find the essence of life.

Once upon a time,
We knew how to feel...
Once upon a time,
we lived.

it is a beautiful write with an atmosphere of melancholy created in subtle nuances that reminisce in bittersweet folds~
makes me wonder how we lose~where we lose those once upon a time's and will remembering bring them back or just recreate a facsimile of the original breathtaking aura~

This poem really represented long relationships and family. We all have moments where we dream together like when we are with our spouse. Very visual. Good job.

Beautiful dreams carried upon the wings of memories...before the realisation that once upon a time has passed....Wonderful work my dear!

once upon a time... fairytales were real, alas that time has passed and now what have we? malaise? would that we could step back into the book of fate...

Posted 9 Years Ago

the repetition enhances a sense that the melancholic tone is profound enough to be repeated over and over and this write works well with that in mind...it's delicate and well reflects the abundance of a romantic heart...very much enjoyed....
