FORGOTTEN NORTH

FORGOTTEN NORTH



My Grief is fog
The sea is wild

Head winds are still
And I am lost.

I turn to land.
The rocks too sharp.
I have no map
The road is gone.

Biting Rocks
Bleeding feet.
Burning Ice floes
   follow me
In blinding void
 I am lost.

The compass twirls
And East turns West.

The sky 
        is 
          black.

             &       I 
                  am lost.

My North is gone
      Forever
              gone.

And I am lost

           Forever

                 Lost.

    Jack...always happy to hear your comments. This was written when I was missing my mother, now deceased, but it is really a work about loss.....V

    wow, I love the format of this one. It makes the poem really stand out. GREAT lines and makes for that forlorn feeling. Nice to see you. luv, Andrea

    Andrea....glad you like it. Dark poetry is difficult to write without becoming maudlin. I have been house sitting where there is no internet...bummer, but am looking for a new place where there is wifi...too many tourists in town (fishing derbies are big in Alaska) will find a place when summer ends. Love, Vic
