Lost


The sky finally spills over…
While, I sit with a cup of coffee on my solitary verandah
Looking beyond the greydom
Into the distance…through the rain, through your eyes

A melancholy tune wafts in…
While I lose you in this world
I had let you down, yet your eyes never accused me…
I loved you, yet I let you go…but you never complained…

Time moves on…but, times like these…
As, I watch the empty streets…
And, the rain drenches my soul…
I miss you…yet, I cannot reach for you

It was a strange act…
Caught between eternities and fleeting moments…
Your arm was reassuring but I was scared
Your presence was calming, but I was restless…

And, then you were gone…
Like the restless breeze lost in the meadows…
Maybe, I never loved you enough
Maybe, I never knew how to…

I hold the cup tightly…
As, the rain lashes my eyes
And, I shut the world out…
Waiting. Despairing. Hoping. Despairing.

Waiting. Despairing. Hoping. Despairing." some people best spill out themselves in words....you are one of them...that tiring viscious cycle we all go through at times....i never knew words could describe that feeling until i read this piece...keep writing

no one can ever decide on how to love..you just do..in your own way...just the way you re supposed to.....you have a lovely heart and these verses that you write do more than just prove that...its ok to be lost brother...just let the rain wash this feeling of being lost...when the sun is out you ll be able to see your way again...in a new light..much love..
