Lost Desires / by Jonathan Fiero

I'm lost from all I've known

everything I wanted to be,

is gone forever from thought

left with only desire and regret

What I would give, for the 

things I want now, to

have been what I wanted then

all that remains, is the future

and the sun...

 

What would the world be

without the sound of a creek

what would we all see

without the light that shines

 

The shadows creeping ever close

to cast darkness over light

an eternal battle, light returns

brought forth with fading night

We are dust from ancient worlds

and stars that long have passed

just as the earth, we have twirled

from the light of our ending days,

to return to the dark
