Once Upon a Time


Once upon a time,
Love was more
than a word
it meant more than
a diamond ring
more than
written words
once upon a time
love was the only evil in the world
it was all there was until hate came along
grooms became jealous
brides became superstitious
families tore apart
old friends battled each other
best friends envied one another
