Once

I once knew love

As stars above

Shone down like rain

In a lightning storm

Cyclonic embrace

Enraptured my soul

And brought me to tears

When it died long ago

 

I once had trust

As rocks below

Sturdy like mountains

In a typhonic blow

Earthy encased

Captured my fears

And taught me to doubt

When crumbled all it endears

 

I once felt truth

As sunshine surrounds

Leapt up like static-shock

Grappling me to the grounds

Intricately interfaced

Nurtured my name

And caught me without

When I was pulled from the frame

 

I once held faith

As lifting clouds

Cradled my dreams

Impervious to the tempest

Reluctance replaced

Future foretold

And naught came about

When forced from the threshold

 

I once could see her

As a parallel echo

Two lives in trajectory

Slipstream simpatico

Obstacles outfaced

Adventures in pair

And the vision erased

When it kicked me down the stairs

Great poem, love the structure and word choices. I've just gone through what you speak of. I'm not sure about the last line though. It feels too out of place.
Thanks
