Bargains

Once upon a time

I was a bargain

at that bargain store 

you accidentally chanced upon.  

I was the bid you monopolized on,

and you claimed I was all yours.

 

Not even mine.

 

Once upon a time 

I heard your changing heart

I heard your faltering hopes

and yet I let you take hold .

My butterflies fluttered 

across the yard

though you killed each of them

 

I could not leave your side.

Once upon a time,

our tables turned

I called bids

you had to pay the price.
