I Am Lost

I am lost within this maze
This labyrinth
I am frightened of the shadows
And the Minotaur within
I move forward
Or so it seems
Till I’m backward
Lost in dreams
Just lost

I am lost within this house
This cold mansion
I have lost all sense of purpose
I wander like a ghost
I make a memory
Make a stand
But it’s never
What I planned
Just lost

I am lost within my heart
All its tributaries
Are held circular and I
Return only to myself
I reach out
In deep despair
But I’m only
Touching air
Just lost

  2. I hate that feeling. It’s paralyzingly and I never know how to get out of it.

    Being lost in this labyrinth is like a glass pane being shattered into a million pieces. There is no way out but the one where you have to cut a part of your heart which is a portal to the exit.
    Powerful verses…
