Back Then


Yesterday's ink 
gives a view 
into my thoughts 
of you 
back then  

Back then 
I knew 
what love was 

or thought I did 

Back then, 
tomorrow
seemed 
such a long way off  

Today's view 
has been tarnished 
by the 
soot 
on the panes of glass  

Smoke 
from the fire 
that once burned 
in my heart   

For you  

Back then
