This is what it's like to be lost

To not know what lies ahead

Each step taken


Or not at all.

And this is what it's like:

Not to have words

For how you feel

To see the world

in washed out color

ground smooth

by the ever swift

movement of time.

Thank you for this contribution. While you say "not to have words" -- your words conveyed the feeling of being lost and losing the bright colours of the world quite well. Being lost and having the distinct colours and shapes of the world be washed out create a stark, forlorn feeling in the reader as distinct as clouds floating past the full moon.
