Have you ever felt lost, in an emotional way?
This morning I was listening to the Mariana’s Trench song, Haven’t Had Enough. I was inspired by the lines in the Bridge of the song and wrote this poem. Here is the Bridge (aka my inspiration):
Well I just wish we could go back one more time,
And begin it,
Back before I lost myself somewhere,
Somewhere in it.
The YouTube video for Haven’t Had Enough follows my poem below.
Lost and Needs a Home
Lost, you can tell me I’m lost,
But I’m fine with that
(It’s a real find),
You see there is a bin in the corner where
I can join the single glove, umbrella,
Who have no home either,
Soon to be missed by their owners.
I’ll take that place over this table,
Where you stare at your cell phone to
Avoid my hazel eyes
(Although I avoid yours first)
And wonder if I would be a better pair for that glove
Than for you.
Perhaps I am more likely to fit in that bin
Than in your life?
You may think I’ve lost it –
But really I just realized where my home really is.
