Readers Write: Lost


by Katie, 14

Sharp, bitter, and cruel
It is spoken in haste,
Clawing and tearing
The heart.
A barb in the flesh,
Buried deep down inside
Never to surface again.

The words of yesterday, we
Cannot retrieve,
Though we wish to go back.
Put past the sorrows
Of yesterday,
Live in the present
Hope for the future
Learn from the past.

A word has wings,
Longing for flight,
Once set free,
Forever Lost.

Learn, I say learn!
Once Lost,
Forever Lost.
