Once Upon a Time

It used to be that way
Tear-drops hidden behind my smile
That shall never chance to fall
That shall never touch my face
That shall never hit the ground

A smile that held it all - buried
Behind it lay shadows of a past
Where years of who I could have been
Were nothing but particles of dust

Drowning in dunes - dust to sand
Swimming for the surface
Struggling for air
As more of me was lost.......

All that I wanted to dream, reduced
All that was left of me was defence
Any tear that shall escape
Absorbed by the sand sculpture
Of which I had become
