Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Lost


I travel the breadth of the night
Searching for a place to lay myself
The trees are without branches
Night rain is in the air
The birds wouldn’t share their nest
Man is a prey anyway
Lighting wouldn’t let me find my way
Even the night knows I was lost
They stare with big eyes
Like the owls in my nightmares
Maybe it’s a nightmare
But tonight I wouldn’t wake from it
So I travel the night alone
Knowing it’s a reality I’ll never wake from

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
