Long Lost

“joshua tree” by iamlonglost

I’d be lying if I said
“All I think about is you”
And I’d be lying too
If I were to say
“I never think of you”

So can you can see?
The great predicament
That I find myself in

The reckless in-between
Of a faltering feeling
Easily swaying with the day
Blowing…

“snowy sunset” by iamlonglost

I’m sitting in my chair
Scrolling through bad news
Adding fuel to the fire
Of my already bad mood

All of the sudden
Something catches my eye
Tones of a magenta glow
Reflecting on the windowpane
So I get up
In my own sort of insane way
And look out the window
To watch the sun as…

“buffalo” by iamlonglost

Love is difficult
When our hearts sway a little
With each new notification

We used to listen
To each other’s hearts beating
Now we just long for
Another tingle, from phone vibrations

And I’ve figured her out
Her little algorithm
Lacking complexity
In an ever-complex world

I’m growing lackluster
She is…

“lake george” by iamlonglost

In your eyes
And I can nearly feel the sunshine

But I’m addicted to your starlight
And your sun-like radiance

Won’t you save me from yourself?
Or will you…

“yellowstone” by iamlonglost

Set free
This child’s heart
Where curiosity
Illuminates darkness
And lost humanity
Cuts off this face
So that society
Can burn on a new one

The agony
Of living here
Where dreams
Don’t really come true

In the limited space
Of the human race
Where we build boxes
Around the incessant possibilities…

“dreamy” by iamlonglost

Records spinning
Like black and white film reels
Painting musical miracles
For my ears to enjoy

My utmost attention
Engaged in the echos
Of a needle weaving
Etching beautiful notes
Into vinyl dreams

I receive them well
And get lost in the sound
Riding record vibrations
Until I am found
Hungover from the LP…
