I Had….

I had a love
And it bled out
Like a scabbed knife wound
Undone by sex.

I had a life
And it crept away
tied to imaginings
of someone else.

I had a dream
And it died
candy coated bliss
stolen by time.

I had a heart
And it hurt
Rendered full of tears
By a cold hand.

I had a moment
And it went
Fled like a betrayed
Naive young child.
