As Once I Was

This song is by Alabaster dePlume and appears on the album Copernicus: The Good Book of No (2012).

There they will be
As once I was
As once
I was?

On the rotten longing
And the wronging long forgotten
On the dross

Hope that want that wants wants
Loss
As once I was

And as they do
And as they mean to do
And as I was once wont to, too

What one wants and
What one once was wanting
-And what wanting was-

On the rotten longing
On the wronging long forgotten
-What wanting was-

Garrot the lot

Not forgot, but lost
The loss?
The lot

What once I would have had to have got

Once
Which was
While the while
One day
Will be
Once

What?

A swan's eye
A song's cry
A solemn sigh
As once I
Was
