Lost

Lost

©Gabryshak

I stand here in the watery edge

Of my existence

Watching others

Passing by

Looking into their faces

For an answer to

The Lost joy I once felt

And took so much for granted

I have gone so far within

And found loneliness

I’m losing faith in

What I thought was forever

A feeling so alive

In time, feels like it could die

Though I have been a dreamer

I don’t want to dream

Anchor my feet in a cold

And crass reality

Let the songs fall

To the lips of the birds

Who have long since

Flown south

But as I hold my child

To my heart

I know

And I cry for you

Lost

Artist's Description

featured feb 2010 in Up & Coming Writers – appreciate the love tremendously sally, keith and jordan!


i do not question the thoughts that are laid upon my heart, but rather write them down as they are poured from my soul, line by line as you see them here. none of my writings have ever been edited.

among the indians of the pacific northwest, the verb for “making poetry” is the same as the verb “to breathe”
