National Poetry Month 01 – I’m Told That We Should Meet

I’m told that we should meet, to eat and drink
And get to know each other like we ne’er
Have met before. There was a time, I think,
When we did meet, a time of yesteryear.
We both were young, the future bright and bold—
The sun of hope shines his promised truth:
That we could know who we would be when old
(a mystery unraveled by a sleuth).
But bastard Time conspired fate against
Us, stealing hope away and leaving with
Our dreams, left us locked up inside the fence
Of iron bars. Our hearts are brittled stiff.
Why should we meet when we in lonely pain
Know that cruel life won’t let us love again.
