    Who Would Have Known

    What happened to the day when I craved your smile?
    Innocence flowing like the river into the Nile
    Once upon a time I thought you were the one
    When my heart skipped a beat and words slipped off my tongue
    Those were the days when we strolled through the park
    Not caring if the sun slipped into the dark
    Days when you stole my heart and made it into new
    The days when I craved you
    The days when I knew
    You were the one
    But then it stung
    Like the bite of a snake
    Who knew my heart you would break?
    If I could only take back that day
    When my body was at bay
    A temple to your throne
    Who would have known?
    But then it was shown
    and then it was known
    That your son had taken my body for his own
    And as for the thief who slipped away into the night
    His father was never known
    Nowhere in sight

    This is a good poem but sad all at the same time. I enjoyed reading it. You have a unique way of expressing yourself
