DISCARDED

Poem Commentary

For children who loved and were discarded...

DISCARDED

Always something different

Usually without thought

Sometimes between often and soon

Our love he slowly bought

 

Along the way we drifted

Under pretenses mostly false

Above believing differently

Blind to future loss

 

Before the eye could blink

After taking all our hearts

Upon his time of finding new

Left us with broken parts

 

Never thinking of his wreckage

Almost damaged beyond repair

Always wary now of anyone

Showing any sign of care

 

Under a cloak of indifference

Beyond the scope of most

Over all the years of life

Love remained a ghost
