Coddled ‘n cosseted by fragrant memories
I tread into the cobbled alleyways of yore
Wherein exuberance ain’t incarcerated within boundaries
Emblazoned with the blossom of innocence within my core
Bustling ‘n bursting with pristine vigor
I saunter through the verdant expanse chasing butterflies
Allowing the mellifluous chirping of birds to trigger
My succulent hopes, wherein no darkness lies.
Regret ‘n rejection never loomed large
The dainty dulcet melody of life melded into me
Savoring my candy floss, kissed by zephyr, I’d recharge
Living every moment, life was mine with cauldrons of glee.
Alas! lost are those verdant meadows and the wooded hillocks
Wisps of fragmented dreams now play hide and seek
Smothered and raging emotions darken my world idyllic
While a lone tear trickles down my sunken cheek.
