Once upon a time ago ever after.

 Once upon a time ago ever after.


Once upon a time ago ever after two very
lonely souls had met by chance then fell pretty
much in love with each other the first time
that they laid eyes on each other you know
how the story goes then one thing led to another
saw each other at a party boy sees the girl she
goes yum they talk dance then we kissed the
world spun lightning flashed and the thunder
crashed then they saw fireworks in each other’s
eyes, stopped took a breath had to check if that
was real so they kiss their lips locked on to the
other they danced so closely together with two
hearts started beating out the same beat that
two lonely broken souls became confused and
touched causing a chain reaction becoming
one soul for a brief moment transferring all
they knew to the other becoming dependant
on each other where they for the rest of time
be soul mates... believe it or not, that was you
and I, thinking back now it seems so long ago,
anyway what started out as two lonely people
coming from different times and places had
found something in the other that they both
had needed so neither wanted to let the other
go, it was happy with smiles everywhere they
would go holding hands and kissing while
making love with both of them wishing that this
feeling would never come to an end, so they
got married way too soon. He was a little older
a veteran of Loves Wars having fought and
losing that battle three times before yet he was
having a lot of fun but could never quite
understand what the younger generation was all
about but he tried very hard Oh man did he try
the best he could but she was younger
living in a different world and behavior one
that was free to do whatever with whomever
whenever they can believing that there was
a difference between having sex and making
love, that telling little white lies was okay,
because that is what mamma says as time
went on those very problems were getting
bigger than either would ever say causing
issues to arise that neither one could hide
causing a rift between them that grew so big
that even still today will never end. Unlike
their so-called relationship that should no,
needs to come to an end for good, I know that
we did not start out to hurt each other it
really was very much love but longer and better.
We just came from two different ways of
thinking neither of us is to blame it is just
the way it was and still is today. I am sorry
for not knowing better or understanding the
huge difference that was between us in the
beginning maybe I should have, either way
I do now and I know that we never belonged
together in the first place, but I will always
be flattered that you even looked my way, your
beauty is way too much for me, I believe
that time had poisoned or stagnated what
we had to cause us to become very toxic,
causing irreversible damage to whom we
were creating this disaster we call today, so
we need to both salvage what is left of our
messed up lives. We have a chance right now
to find our own happiness with someone else
It is time that we separate before we destroy
each other any further than we already have
not just for us but our families, friends, and
especially Ryder who hates the screaming
that is going on day after day, now you are in a
place that you can be free to be what and
who you want to be and I am still trapped in
place far away through all of time and space
still very much alive in the ink that had created
the words and letters even sentences that
fill the library of all the memories of a good time
we had, maybe one day you will remember
even just a partial or tidbit of those wonderful
times we shared while living in harmony for
when and if you do that will break the spell
allowing me to come back to the now today
and even tomorrow so I too can begin to heal
and even move forward little by little in time
so I may look back without tears falling down
like rain, just know that I will always love you
and even hate you for showing me the way to
heaven even if it was the long way through
hell.
