Lost


A wanderer in the desert
of life
Going nowhere
but in circles
You are lost
Lost to you
Lost to me
The light has gone from your eyes
Blinded by your ignorance
You stumble through life
A victim of your own stupidity
Who are you?
Jeckyl or Hyde?
For I don't recognize
the creature before me
Your allies - lies and betrayal
have led you here
Lost to you
Lost to me

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
