Lost To Be Alive

Lost To Be Alive ballad

Photo by DanBrady

Like the cold old mountains
And the sorrowful seas
Are there, forever,
Immobile; souls and minds.
I’m lost,
Patiently lost.

Like the tender fairy wind,
Comes with such magnificent swift.
Like the roaring river
To be absorbed into the lover’s arms.
I’m lost,
Excitedly lost.

Like the morning purple sun,
And the birds singing, of their homes.
Like the twilight of the setting sun
And the birds flapping back in flocks,
I’m lost,
In honesty, I’m lost.

Like the evaporating water
And the clouds that rain,
Like the changing seasons,
Like the eternal foreplays
Of nights and days,
I’m lost,
Perpetually lost.

In the depth of mother’s eyes;
Like the genesis of time.
In the touch of lover;
Like the revival of the dead.
I’m lost,
Beautifully lost.

Lost Passion

Alone and unwanted. Unnecessary and useless. Unable to satisfy. In need of replacing. The heat of the moment. Now died down. Left unfeeling. Mind still racing. A touch once hot. The passion now gone. No longer needed. No more devoured.

Sometimes, I just want to fly away and sit by a coast dotted with tiny creeks and gaze at the pebbles sleeping peacefully at the bottom of the stream while drenching my feet in water as pure as an infant.
