What Happened (poem)

Updated on May 31, 2017

Again she combs the night of hope to find

A moment that was somewhere skipped in time

Was when reality replaced sublime

And world around her turned a bit less kind


Atop success’ mountain she did climb

Lost trails of fans’ loud clamoring behind

Into this person’s lifestyle now resigned

So far from home she couldn’t see her crime


Her children didn’t know her anymore

They sat with dad as she put on her show


And everything was older than before

Twas at that moment gloom replaced the glow


Her mind now trapped in life’s revolving door

Her kids said mom it’s time for us to go

      You write from the heart. It has been a while since I heard from you.
