I Am Lost

I am lost
I cannot be found
I am trapped in a labyrinth
With no hope of rebound
You've led me here
To my doom
My hope lost with each shed tear
Shattered by deceit
I silently scream and hysterically cry
But my lament is not heard
I know if I'm not found in this maze
I will surely die
When suddenly I feel you and look up to meet your gaze
Through my tear stained eyes
I realize you 've brought me to this place I am bound
You are to leave me here with no return
I once was lost but now I am found
Amid shattered dreams and broken crowns

    I once was lost but now I am found
    Amid shattered dreams and broken crowns
    -ending always matters..and here again it was just amazing..
    finding someone in dreams that too scattered is an innovative thinking but very powerful..
    got 10++

    I see nothing to be lost about, think on it. Evidently she is crushed with a heavy heart. I hope it HEALS and know that it will.

    aziz,
    I am glad that through our private tète-à-tète we were able to overcome this miscommunication. i look for nothing but friendship and support through this website, in which i have met kind, creative, compassionate, talented and caring people of all ages and nations. we all share the same aspirations, to share our thoughts and poetry with all members of the site. our craft comes in all divergent styles, genres, and ingenuity. some are satisfied with thier skill level and some desire tutelage. but in the end the ideal is still the same, to share and find companionship through our work. now that we have overcome ourdifferences and miscommunication i hope that we can start anew, perhaps finding a mutual respect for each others work. my sincere best regards,
    J.C.

    I think I made a mistake here.
    I should have been a little careful for some sensitive and now I realize, after she eloquantly explained to me and belatedly a very creative person.
    Somewhere in the middle I thought in my haste that there was some uncalled for submission to fate that the poetess began by criticizing.
    I will read more and if I caused you any hurt, I apologize.

    Jen,
    There is no need for you to be nasty.
    I said what I felt unless you want me to lie about it.
    I am sorry you took this very personal and I promise not to read your work or to comment on it.
    I am barely ready for such dejected quarrels.
    I have more important things to do.
    Thanks alot but my true colours you will never be able to grasp.

    aziz,
    i think you were lost when you came onto my poetry page and decided to make a comment like that. it's people like you that put to shame open poetry sites. thank you for your comments and showing your true colors.
