Once Upon a Time


Once upon a time
I would have cared.
Once upon a time.
But now I’m left with nothing but despair.

Once upon a time
I would have loved.
Once upon a time.
But now I’m left with nothing but hate.

Once upon a time
I would have laughed.
Once upon a time.
But now I’m left with nothing but tears.

Once upon a time
I would have sung.
Once upon a time.
But now I’m left with nothing but wails.

Once upon a time
You were alive and well.
Once upon a time.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
