A Poem for the Lost

A long road to nowhere.

I'm lost.

Like a forgotten love letter of health.

Flowing through the atmosphere's cold, arid breathe.

Needing to find his way home.

Stamping his love that's untold.

Misplaced and gone,

Like me, I'm lost.

A road so oblique, yet seemingly plumb.

My feet, numb so they walk, yet him, he runs.

He's a blur on a page, far far gone.

I wrote him down, for love's breaking bond.

He's tough, now mossed.

Like me, I'm lost.

In a forest so cold with frost that scolds.

My letters they freeze and my words they fold.

Gone in the night never to return.

As I sit and think to say so stern.

Like the long lost letter.

Forever, I'm lost.
