toy story

it was a simple time
it was an uncomplicated time
i used to draw
multicolored streams
and a sky
reflecting all those colours

it was a simple time
it was an innocent time
i made paper planes
from some of the pages
on which i drew
i made paper boats
from the rest of those pages

i chased those planes
across the field
i ran down stream
along with those boats

and then times changed

the boats
no longer remained afloat
the planes
no longer took flight
drowned crashed
to resemble a messy blot

and the colours
the colours mixed together
to resemble stains
