When You Were Mine

When you were mine,
the world held promise.
Hope around every corner,
endless possibilities along our path.
When you were mine,
you loved me.
Each gaze sent my way
as if I had hung the stars.
But when you were mine,
you stopped smiling.
For a while,
I hadn’t noticed.
Now that it’s back,
I don’t know how I missed it.
When you were mine,
you lost yourself.
Falling away from the one I loved
to become an imagined ideal.
Somewhere along the way,
we stopped working.
Even still,
We were happy for a while,
weren’t we?
When you were mine?

Prompt: When You Were Mine
