Lost

Lost

A Poem by Zoya

Somedays

I don't like the way
this world talks

valuable lines are left incomplete
while empty words steal the exclamations

your emotions
hide behind an ellipsis

people don't finish sentences for you anymore


Somedays

I wish this world had more like you

I don't know what you mean
when you say
-It's all gonna be okay-
but hey, I don't want to know
what you mean

because

sometimes

lost

is a good thing to be

i like the emotions hiding behind the ellipsis...

and generally the unfinished sentences at times might be better...because if we really get the entire essay, we may not like what we read, or what we see of that person.
Better to be lost and confused than understanding what is said and disappointed.

"people don't finish sentences for you anymore" this line is strong. Well you get that certain point in life, little things just seem to matter most than people pretending to say that you matter to them. I hope you're doing fine now :))

that's true...everyone is trying to say that they want others to understand but they dont say anything fully or their feelings are not expressed fully...time is lost

I do agree Zoya. Okay is enough sometimes. We need to appreciate the warm days and good company near. Don't demand everything at one time. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome my friend.
'Sometimes lost is a good thing to be'
Exactly. We dont need to have everything figured out. Not knowing is happiness too. And your poem expressed it so simply yet powerfully. Zoya, I am always in awe of your talent when it comes to words.

Ever so kind! Thank you, Neetha :)
I love the play on words here... Sometimes, in a world this chaotic and loud, the only words that deserve the attention are the ones you can get lost and find solace in. I'm glad someone can give you the break from the loud crowd, and can give you the words you need to understand what it means to feel at peace.

Keep writing! Your poems are the quiet place in a literary world of hopeless screaming. Your work offers that same solace that you find in the words of your loved ones.

That's such a wonderful thing to say! I'm so glad you find peace in my work. Thank you yet again :))
Thoughtful emotion have been brought in the introductory part of this shorter piece of writing... Made it a general character-driven poem... its generated an idea to me to write something related to it... short but powerful... very nicely written...Keep it up !!

Thank you so much again, Abhishek. Appreciated :)
You have trained me to be excited when I open one of your poems from my reading list. Your writing is so consistently thought-provoking & fresh, I am always pleased to find myself facing one! This is delicious & whimsical in all the ways I crave, especially now with the world growing noisier & noisier with strife & fomenting. This is the kind of lighthearted get-away I need when I write most of my own poems & I love finding new ideas for get-aways when I read you. I love how your writing seems to be nonsensical & playful, yet always with a strong valid point to make. Here's hoping you & yours are all well. (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Being lost and silent is definitely a good thing. Because I believe after a certain point in time you'll be happy when you are being left alone. People are toxic & scary these days.

Definitely not all but most of them. I lIke

you don't need the 'what you mean' tailing that stanza (not necessary at all), but other than that this is powerful and amazing. "your emotions hide behind an ellipsis" knocked it out of the freaking park, and that ending.....brilliant! Simply brilliant! Well done!
