Those were the times.

I miss staring into the horizon

wondering about

all the possibilities

that

tomorrow

would bring

 

I miss thinking

that

the only limitations

were the skylines of your mind

 

I miss the daydreaming

that existed

before the coming

of habitual tendency

of responsibility

of maturity

 

I miss the luxury

of freedom

of believing that anything was possible

with a forward looking smile

with kaleidoscopic eyes

 

Those were  the times

when happiness came naturally

and needed no protection

from our sighs

needed no provocation

and no reason

to exist

 

Those were the times

when happiness was happy.

  1. this is such a beautiful poem… I really love it. The wording is just so real and organic. I can relate to these emotions so much and honestly, I wish I had written it myself. Thank you for writing this extraordinary piece!!

  2. “I miss thinking that the only limitations were the skylines of your mind”

    Lately I feel as though I’ve been creating more limitations in my mind and it had been wearing me down. So I decided I would fight back against those limitations and work on becoming who I want to be. I’ve very much been my own enemy in this fight.
