The World I Have Known Unitl Now

The world that I have known 
Till now
Was something of dreams
It reminds me of sunshine
And pretty things
The thought brings giggles
And chuckles and laughs
And happy, contented sighs
And an assurance
It would never change
It would always be a cozy blanket
Tucked in at night
Or a shaded spot under the sun
During the day
It would always be
There for me
That world was made of you.

The world that I am aware of now
Is quite different from 
What I thought it was
It shatters the sunshine
And pretty, little dreams
And brings to mind a grotesque picture
Of the coldness of pride
And faces that are turned
Away from my own
Or looking at me
Through cold, empty eyes
And hands that had once
Promised to hold me close
Are clenched into fists
Or waving me away
Or slapping me in the face
Or stabbing me in the back
And rapidly disillusioning me
From what I thought was
But obviously isn’t
No need to continue
I am aware of what you are now
And who you have been all along.
