More

 

I had hoped for

 

more,

 

I had dreamt of

 

more,

 

I had been promised

 

more,

 

I had planned for

 

more.

 

 

 

Alas, more,

 

merely a word,

 

intangible and

 

immeasurable.

Once Upon a Time

There was a time,

I admired you,

before I knew,

the better, the

world, and the truths,

contained  in the

cracks of your lies.

  

There was a time

when I loved you,

before I knew,

my heart’s limits,

my true value,

and my value

in your life plan.

 

 There was a time

I trusted you,

before I knew,

the piercing pain,

the savage scars,

some visible,

while most unseen.

 

 There was a time

I gave you a

place in the ruins

of what would one

day become my

well-designed, steely

fortress, my life.

 

There was a time

I said good-bye,

Because I knew.
