The Meaning of...Lost

Last Wednesday's writing prompt was "The Meaning of..." My first response was The Meaning of "Writer's Block" because I just couldn't seem to get anywhere. I was lost....hmmm...lost? So here goes.

The Meaning of "Lost"

The roads are closed.
The signs are faded.
It's a black and moonless night.
My car is stuck.
I'm aggrivated.
Should I turn left, or right?

I lost my map,
And all direction.
I'm feeling so alone.
My cell phone just
Lost it's connection
How will I get back home?

I'm cold and tired.
And tired of crying
But I continue on.
Maybe the stars
Will hear me trying,
And shine until the dawn.

My Heart

I wanted to try something called a "Kelly Lune" (style of poetry - American Haiku) so here goes...

I can't seem to think
Of much else
But my beating heart.
