They Were Lovers Once

Together but walking different paths
Together but walking different paths

The bitter bickering old couple often seen as much as the loving couples… yet they too were lovers once… an old verse of mine restored to the site.

Before the now, cold touch, harsh words
They were lovers, once upon a time, long ago
Excited at the sound, touch, scent of each other
When their bodies youthful passions did know
But that was then.

These days, they merely live together
Grunt greetings and goodbyes, passion spent
Now in spiteful cuts they communicate
In hurting each others feelings are content.
But, that.. it was when

No wrinkles buckled youth fresh skin
Each other had not long or well known
Had they kept it that way throughout the years
Perhaps more love would be shown…
Between women and men.

Have your say...
