At The Past....

by Sherrell Faythe

At the past she would laugh-
See her now looking in the mirror back then 
Silly girl-she sighs
Reflecting on the one who thought she was wise
She had no idea of what time would reveal about those jokes 
About those simple minded folks
Some who said they loved her
Many she told that she loved too
Knowing they were lost just like she 
No pain in the way but pain in losing days
Wasting time-while playing games 
There she was doing what I would do over again so differently 
But then was…..
Now is where she has to do her reconciling 
She would be ashamed if they bumped into her now
They would not even know her 
In the way that the days have changed her inside
She knows what she knows and that is nothing but yesterdays 
So much had been a masquerade 
So much had been exploited in the parade 
So much had been lost in the laughter
There was to be no happily ever after…
Until after
