Music can be a great source of inspiration when it comes to writing, and this little poem is the product of listening to a song on loop. “Outside” By Hollywood Undead for those who want to know what the song was, and trying to match the over all feel of the song i wrote this.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy the read,
Things Once Known
Once upon a time I knew many things
Once upon a time I knew how to laugh and sing,
I knew the warmth of having love fully shared,
If only I had acted with more caution and care.
A fool of a child, I didn’t understand how precious it was,
A fool of a man, I forgot the damage a harsh word does.
They say that hindsight is twenty twenty,
But looking back now the errors of my way simply pain me.
Errors that I will never forget,
Memories of things I’ll always regret.
So with scars in my heart I keep my back to the past,
Awaiting the day I heal at last.
To once again remember how to laugh and sing,
To once more know the warmth love can bring.
