Invisible Forces

Longing to linger in the days before

when unclaimed possibilities were free to soar,

to capture celestial intentions before they crashed

and dare to dream unabashed;

to have something to stand for

Even as a stone lion produced a menacing roar,

we were hungry for more and more  

We added layers, a textured life unsurpassed

in the days before

How the invisible hands of time even a score

and simplify stories of yesterday and yore,

stealing hope once stashed and

rewriting reasons why we clashed

It makes us forget the magic and rapport 

of the days before
