Lost 2


Before time we were all lost,
Lost in the memories of emptiness,
Of the void of darkness,
Lost within all that was,
Of all that could never be,
The intelligence forgotten,
Like the aurora of morning,
Of an azoic trunk,
Or an elusive forest, trapped,
In a paper plane,
On yielding skies,
Held up by strings,
In a play before the arctic oceans,
Froze at a rapid pace,
Or birds that migrate to the tropics,
Never seeing the colors of autumn,
Or phasing to the end,
Never to the azure sky,
Or beige eyes,
In a mountain way up high,
Reaching for the finale,
The final warning of summer,
Of the wintry slit,
Through the clouds,
Lost in confusion,
Caught up in the middle,
Forgetting a way out.
