The missing boy

The boy who made your heart
Skip a beat with a wink
The one who made you laugh
Whith stories good for shrinks

The boy who used to cheer
Your paintings and your pics
The one who used to call you
Love, angel, stupid dream

That boy is missing now
He’s left, he’s far away
His place is now the scene
For a man who cannot play

A man with busy hands
And wiser, heavy eyes
A man who can tell stories
A man who can tell lies

A man you wouldn’t know
But if you need a clue
A man with a sad smile
Each time he thinks of you.

    The man devoured the child
    The one who would run wild
    The child within the man
    forgets how once he ran
    with his dreams, not from them flee
    forgets his liberty…..

    Oh, HC… That last stanza just broke my heart. 😦 But it was a beautiful poem…
