Once I Walk This Earth



once I walked this earth
tasted all its dreams
once my heart knew love
and yet I lost it all
to late now I sleep


for de verse poets

"and yet I lost it all" ... A lot of pain here. Sleeping is good medicine for sorrow.

Sadness always brings refkection into the course of our lives. I really enjoyed this, though sorrowful.

Yes, the melancholy does seep through strongly in this composition... You use the structure so subtly, the best way possible.
