This is my third blog, dedicated solely to my literature, be it poetry, short stories, narrative essays, or whatever else. If you want something with more of an appeal to logos, then try reading my stuff on politics or evolution vs. Creationism.

Lost

This poem looks a lot better in Word format, as it's got interesting spacing and such.

Where am I?

I was just walking along, lost in thought,
The thoughts displaced by others.
A jostling crowd in my mind.
I was doing fine, in the hall,
My books in hand, life is simple.

Then you smiled.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, my eyes on nothing.
My focus nonexistent;
Trying to reach my next class.
I was doing fine, outrunning the bell.
Pens in my pocket, life was simple.

Then I saw you.
Then you smiled.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, nothing’s important;
I’m still limping, thanks to my back,
A flaring pain that can’t match you.
I was doing fine, despite the pain,
It’s only physical, my life was so simple.

My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Then you smiled.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, perhaps thinking of you.
Then, like magic, you appear.
And memory hits as a storm.
I was doing fine, and here you are
And guess what’s up now; life’s not so simple.

My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, as you now smile;
The whole world is aglow,
Everything is seeming okay.
I was doing fine, doing better now,
But let me tell you, life is now complex.

My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
Worlds brightened.
Where am I?


I was just walking along; new pain besets me,
Not a knife twisting my heart,
But a steel band crushing my lungs.
I was doing fine, not so hot now,
Mostly due to: life is so complex.

My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, now lost in your eyes,
My strongest feeling,
Buffeting me in its raw strength.
I was doing fine, then I made an error.
This is the mistake that makes life so complex.

I was lost.
My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, still with heart shattered.
And I ask myself once more,
Why I love you so.
I was doing fine, and I guess here I am,
Looking at my love. Life is so hard.

I was lost.
My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
I was found.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, no longer in a hall;
But lost in your smile.
I wander through this labyrinth.
I was doing fine; back in the real world.
Now I’ve lost it; life is so complicated.

I was lost.
My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
I was found.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
My heart is lost.
Where am I?

I was just walking along, feeling pretty depressed.
I know there’s no point anymore,
My love will die with me unanswered.
I was doing fine; as I hope you are now.
I’m not important. Life is not important.

I was lost.
My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
I was found.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
My heart is lost.
Where am I?
It doesn’t matter.

I was just walking along, now I smile back.
You are so much more important than me;
Because it’s you whom I love.
I was doing fine, now more bitter, but better.
I know I love you. Life is simple once more.

I was lost.
My eyes rose.
Then I saw you.
Memories flooded in.
Then you smiled.
I was found.
Worlds brightened.
Then exploded.
My heart is lost.
Where am I?
It doesn’t matter.
It really doesn’t.

Where am I?
It really doesn’t matter.
Because I love you.
