Age

You silenced the calling out of children

Across empty lots and down twilight alleyways

You stole the summers of innocents

And the friends and lovers of forgotten days

 

Long ago, you teased me with your possibilities

Filled me with hope and fantasies

Then jerked away your promises

And left me with want and empty dreams
