Lost - Poem by Selina Gurgacz

In a dark world.
no lights to turn on.
inside a maze that seems never-ending.
always turning and finding a dead end.
inside the fortress of my mind.
i call out for help,
but the only answer,
is an echo,
of my own voice.
and not being found,
by someone who actually cares.
but if they did,
i wouldn't be here,
and i wouldn't be,

    The maze is a great metaphor for describing that feeling of helplessness (like trying to hold on to a handful of sand) . The reader feels your angst and the irony of your last line. Great poem. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    Lina, the philosophical twist in the end shows a powerful introspection! You may, in time, revisit this poem to reduce it to core feelings. But for mow it marks a special place in time. Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
