Day 21: Lost

Where do I go?
When the words in my heart dry out.
The reservoir of knowledge,
Slowly disappearing to doubts.
In these letters, I see my fate
Words running together without break,
Without stop.
Falling endlessly into
Cycles of missed connections,
Lost meanings and vapid lyrics.
Sound overriding emotion,
Until words are
Meaningless…
A thing to be,
Not someone to become.
