Once Upon A Time

by Shelby Kluss
(Buffalo, NY)

It was a crush, it was a time,
a time before I called you mine.

It was a moment, it was a kiss,
a kiss that I could not resist.

It was a love, it was a power,
a power turned into a beautiful flower.

It was a first, it was a smile,
a smile that stretched as far as a mile.

It was a joke it was a tear,
a tear that turned into fear.

It was a name, it was a push,
a push that turned me to mush.

It was a lie, it was a cheat,
a cheat that made me lose my feet.

It was a doubt, it was a goodbye,
a goodbye that made me cry.

It was you, it was a time,
a time that I once called you mine.
