Random Poem:

Lost and Found

I once lost
a piece of me
two, to be
not heart or soul, no
no frilly poetic devices
rather my lies, my hurt
drunk ramblings
and stolen quotes
80 pages scrawled
in pen and pencil
bound tight in black leather
mourning their inevitable fate
were they
carelessly tossed
like the empty package
of yesterday's high
or burned up perhaps
in a fumbling,
manic bid
to reduce myself to ashes
