Verlorene Tage/ Lost Days/ Días Perdidos

Tage verlieren sich
Im Nichts der vergehenden Zeit
Wie einsames Herbstlaub

Days vanish in oblivion
In nowhere of the passing time
Like solitary autumn foliage

Días se caen en olvido
En la nada del tiempo pasando
Como hojas solitarias de otoño

Some who got lost

Some folks who got lost
took a road that had no signs
and found each other.

high school love

we offered our hearts
       eagerly sketched in wet sand....
             entwined initials
whispered in the wind
        promises too young to keep…
            first kiss at sunset
a chill from the sea…
        such fragile love would vanish 
            in a wave of tears

Brokeback Mountain

(The Movie) 

eyes dart with red
black, white and sepia hue
the horse slows behind

selfish cotton hide
lust, under the pale moonlight
rustic underwear

Hearts not meant to be
A mountain covered with dust
Orion's chap- stick

Plunging, campfire
Temptations broken wall
Cowboy makes his mark

SUDDENLY LOST Sunset serenades disperse thoughts are her refrains smiling yet she tears. The autumn wind greets, cool breeze brushed her pallor cheeks, her head in the clouds. Rumbles crash silence, denial rush to her lips, ghost eyes snap and slit. The strawberry lies made her wait for sunrises, truth kissed bittersweet. Innocence murdered by colorful, luring masks, times were trashed, wasted. _____________________________ *** Contest Name: LOST Sponsor: Broken Wings 10:33pm, February 05, 2016
