Once upon a time it was love… 
Before the the love and passion 
Settled in cooled ashes of limpid cold embraces 
When you remembered special dates and made special dates 
I remember once upon a time… 
Dressing up for special occasions - 
Choosing a special dress to wear- and shoes to make me feel tall and sexy 
When we talked at our table in a restaurant 
Instead of staring at others… 
Envious of their words and looks that spoke of passion... 
Passion that we once shared 
It was lovely then, looking forward to nightfall 
In un-conjured confidence that love would fill our longings 
We once shared those warm, special moments at breakfast... 
Smiling, like we had a secret we’d just shared… 
Pretending shyness - 
Knowing we had just shared passionate, special moments 

Then it found itself disquited... 
By long moments of unfamiliar silence that touched both of us 
With a  single, extinguished tiny flame... 
Yes it was so lovely back then
