Yesterday- the perfect world
routine, structure, and sureness
when love flowed from walls and lips and
passion was spoken with every word
When brokenness did not exist and
hatred had not yet been born.
When a promise was still a promise,
a hope, a dream of so much more
and a circle represented eternity.
Yesterday was when feelings were raw
and not hidden behind closed doors
Determination danced through the air as
service came from he hands and heart.
But that was yesterday.
Todaya sudden onslaught of emotion,
strings of words combined with
yells and shouting and slamming doors
the promise slips away through clutching fingers
all in a day.
The youngest eyes did not forsee this,
do not understand why, today,
love no longer dances within this house
