A Time When

There was a time when
Princess was more than a term
I felt more alive than numb

There was a time when
You paused and asked
What ached inside

***

There was a time when
You couldn’t go, knowing
I wasn’t myself then

***

There was a time when
You texted and listened
Curious to know the little details

***

There was a time when
You felt and observed more
Than justify and understand after

***

There was a time when
Princess was more than a term
I felt more alive than numb

***

There was a time when
I was whole
And you made me more

***

There was a time when
I expressed more
Than I wrote

***

Yes, there was a time …
And it wasn’t so long ago
Yet it feels ages ago
