Lost



Lost. The feeling of wandering without belonging.
I feel like a ghost. My body hollow.
Where have you gone, my soul-mate? You were my anchor. My breath of life.
Now the trees seem old and dying, the sun cold. And I, I have become nothing without you to hold.
My heart does not beat and my eyes only stare into the void.
I can only wait for life to leave me, resigned.
Like the autumn-flowers wait for the frost.

Mooi schrijven, (misschien omdat omdat het ergens herkenbaar is....) wat verloren is kan (weer) gevonden worden....

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown
