Lost Souls

Where are you? 

My search takes me everywhere
I find nothing
Moving through the maze of life
Hope guides me 
But grows weak with time
Who are you?
Someone from the past
Or the future
The hardest question to answer
I wait for the answer
But where will it come from
Two souls moving through existence
Are you searching as well
You ask where am I?
I’m neither here nor there
Lost in thought 
But I wait eyes, heart and mind open
Will you arrive
Or will we forever be lost
Who am I?
I often ask myself the same question
The answer also complicated
Yet I’m simple
A person of few needs
You are one of those
Looking for direction from you
Where are you?

Another one of my first attempts at poetry. I sent this to myself on June 4 2012, so it was written around that time. It was another attempt to leave the sonnet and venture into free verse. I didn't want to be limited by fxed form, but have since learned how much I actually enjoy fixed forms of poetry. The villanelle, Qautern, Quatrain, now the Terzanelle, and of course my original, the Shakespearean Sonnet, without the iambic redundancies of course, or should I say the iambic pentameter. I had read  Lucilla Carrillo's poem Where are you, and reminded me of these words, although I think the two themes are different.

    Hi Wayland this is a beautiful piece. I like this style... the self-search. Yes we have to ask ourselves these questions from time to time

    I'm glad that my poem reminded you of this one and I'm glad that you decided to post it. It is really good. it is a little different, I wish you would post one in spanish. I bet it would be good. Thank you for your comments on my poems. I am not that good of a writer. I just write because that is what I like to do. Thanks for sharing your work here, Lucilla
