Once Upon a Time
Ghosts linger around my hollow soul,
their broken laughter, a song of woe.
Specters dance like winds of past,
memories linger, lights that last.
Cue the curtains, spotlights train
Two laughing shadows, an endless game
Not Romeo or Juliet,
but nonetheless, their end we met.
Autumn leaves, you and I,
Our fate to fall, cry winter’s rise.
Dawn to dusk, white to green
One aimless girl, her mind now clean
Sands that flow, dear father time
Broken hopes you leave behind
On silver wings, I fly apart
Our story fuels my secret heart.
