Lost


You put my postcode
Into your Sat Nav
So you can find me.

But how we get
From where we are now
To where we want to be
Is a mystery.

  5. Love how you put so much into such a small space.

    Some poems get overburdened with their words. This is sly, simple, yet deep.

  8. Very special and the view of you guys at the old moving picture show and then meandering home. You get clearer and better with every write. Gay @beachanny

  13. Simple and haunting. I love poems that offer a mystery without giving too much of an answer. Some clues are good, but presenting a universe for the reader to think in is every poet's job.
