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
