Lost in My Mind

Updated on June 22, 2013

I sit beside a man

Carved from stone,

His heart an iron fist

And his lips a granite grimace.

Alone at night,

I pace an arch-covered driveway

Thinking of someone

Who awaits me and a sunny afternoon.

I only look for help

From a distant mountaintop,

I may someday reach

If the darkness doesn’t engulf me.

I speak but no one hears

The everlasting cry

Of salvation, freedom

And lost pride.

I have come to the off ramp

And the ride has ended,

And the glory is behind me.

Or has the ride just begun?
