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 Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
