Lost - Poem by Dan Brown

Lost in a world, that scares me to death,
Lost in a crowd, I'm losing my breath.
Lost as a boy, lost as a man,
I need to grow up, don't think I can.

Lost as a person, can't find my way.
Lost in life, every day.
Lost in worry, who am I?
All my life, I've lived a lie.

Lost to kindness, lost to love,
Lost in a sky, like a new-born dove.
Lost in thought, which I shouldn't do,
It winds me up, I can’t get through.

Lost to comfort, all kind words,
Lost to advice, it isn't heard.
Lost to those who really care,
All these people, always there.

Lost in me, I need a break,
Lost in wonder, which road to take?
Lost in a place I don't know well,
Where are you now? There's no one to tell.

Lost here, all alone,
Lost apart from the mobile phone.
Lost still, there are no calls.
I'm struggling alone, to break these walls.

Lost in mind, lost in soul,
Lost memories, they're just a hole.
Lost family, lost mate,
Gone now, yet I'm full of hate.

Lost in a straight world, and I am gay,
Lost now, for what to say,
Lost in boredom, think I'll leave.
There's a lot in life I need to achieve.

    Fluid movement - nice rhythm - one is glad to arrive at the end stanza which clinches the poetic passion and overrides the man's deception. Perhaps it could be called a poem of Hope. Nice work. Panmelys (Report) Reply

    Beautiful, elegant and sad, so sad. A painful poem indeed but a lovely one. There's strength in the struggle and theres beauty in breaking lost one, every peice will be mended and your path becomes clear, run towards the light even though engulfed by fear, take heart dear fellow be strong, be true and at the end of the road the one that is the light is waiting for you. haha im silly sorry that was stupid but anyways great poem
    Merci Pour Le Venin,
