Lost In Clarity (poem)

Loneliness twilight and mist

Forgotten I wander the streets

Left with volumes of memories

Blowing in a well seasoned wind


Where have they all gone to now

Those voices which called out to me

When they needed something completed

When they needed someone to follow

Or just felt like I do right now

Completely alone by myself


The dew of a long drawn out day

Reminds me how old I’ve become

This twilight of journey through wonder

This dream which seemed to never sleep

Older now those cherished footsteps

Older now the meaning of the night

Calling from an emptiness


Where is the clarity of it

What misty scent now draws my mind

The tears of years of what once was

Toying with my loneliness

Toying with my sense of time

Clouding my once Joyous streets

Confounding my confusion

Echoes of things far away


But as I turned a corner

There they all were waiting for me

Where have you been came their chorus

Just finishing something undone

Very nice and says so much about one's ability to reflect and clarify views.
