Once Upon a Time . . . OctPoWriMo

JournalOctPoWriMoBadgr

Once upon a time, she knew a boy

He was sweet, kind, and loving

And a little goofy, oh hell

They were young, and passionate

Trying to find their way through life

He decided he wanted her as his wife

To live & love, and totally share his life

But he didn’t tell her till it was too late

He just couldn’t believe his fate

But it was what it was

She had fallen in love with another man

To console himself, he threw her ring into the bay

And off he went, on his way

She never knew

They both spent their lives

Blissful and miserable, as it was

She thought she’d found her soulmate

A series of bad lovers, he was often discontent

Many decades they were estranged

But fate stepped in and brought them home

At this point they are just friends

But what the future brings

No one knows, though he has shared

They may have business unfinished

If she is ever free to explore the possibilities

A heady thought for her heart to know
