Future Now Past - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

I offered you the moon and stars,
you took the sun instead

Your darkness preyed, all love waylaid,
my dreams and wishes dead

Beyond all hope, with stolen light,
my fear you then unmasked

And pulled a curtain across my heart,
—the future now my past

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June,2017)
