Once the soft delicate tap of the rain on the old tin roof at midnight
Upon drumming endlessly to the tune of tears that fall silently to moonlight's witness
A spindly deer frozen snowflakes in the headlamps of the beat up Volvo
Time darting in the darkness crashing in the infinity dreaming in danger
Once waves of sunny days carrying pearl white sea shells ashore
Upon roaring with life in quiet serenity screaming sorry youth
A look at you who once upon a time
Time I knew you and once upon a
Once I thought I loved you once
Upon a thought that I loved
A once upon a time
Time that I dreamed
Once I thought
Upon a thought
A thought
Time.

A small note about this poem: the first line starts with 16 words and with each subsequent line the poem looses a word (the third to last and fourth to last both have three words though). Also, the first line begins with "once", the second with "upon", the third with "a", and the fourth with "time". this pattern is repeated four times.
