Poetry – We Were Once

Written by Aymann Hafiez

There was once a time we used
To laugh at each other
To smile at each other
There was a time when we would
Let go of everything
Just to be with each other
As time passed by
Rivers began to dry
Seas began to tranquil
Things that were once so bright
Things that were once so colourful
Were no longer there
That you started looking
That you started lingering
In other places
Leaving me to fend for myself
Cold as winter, my heart
Began to feel that once we,
We were so happy
Now it is just something
We used to be…
