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

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
