Poem: Lost Piece

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Lost piece is a poem about wanting to feel connected. Some of us feel like we are different. We don't show who we really are because it is safer to remain hidden. We often desire to be discovered. We want to feel like everyone else. We want to find love. We are tired of being broken.

"So lonely "

Lost Piece

Butterfly...

Send me your multi-coloured wings

So that I might fly

Into that precious palace

Lined with white-linen puffs

Surrounded by a clear

Motionless blue ceiling.


Guide me within that one direction

To help oneself discover

That secret

But overshadowing personality

Hidden beneath those

Fine layers of skin

Of which I seem to be

That one lost and lonely piece

Of the puzzle

No one could put together.


Do not try to figure me out,

I am a puzzle with missing pieces.
