A poem about tragedy, loss, and missed opportunity. Regret always comes too late.
Have you forgotten their radiant glow?
Jaded green eyes with once an emerald shine?
Before this life dealt us the harshest blow
Before my world was ever so sublime

Before your world opened up before me
This lost utopia, paradise slain
Back when this perfect place was yours only
Back before that perfect peace died in vain

Before these harsh truths leapt forth from the dark
Seeking host to their parasitic snare
Before the shrouded sirens left their mark
Before they brought apocalypse to bear

Before your kindness galvanized my will
Forged my soul to its predetermined state
Tempered my wandering to gait of steel
And silenced my heart as I embraced my fate

Jaded green eyes dealt me the harshest blow
But I lost the right to that joyful glow
I won’t forget the incandescent storm
That dulled from those orbs which were once so warm
