Poem: I missed The Perfect Mile

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


I have walked a thousand miles,
encountered detours
along the rough trail,
leading me into the pits
of a continuous dead end.

I remember
as I walk along,
stumbling upon a perfect mile
somewhere upon a narrow road.

It has been so long ago,
my mind can not recall
the path to take
to find it once again,
undoubtedly, I have lost my way,
now it is gone forever.

"Can't Find My Way Back Home" by Blind Faith performed by Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton at the Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007

That is one good way to see it.

After along series of trying to find something you've been dreaming about, you finally find it but don't notice it. After a while, you realize you had it but you can't go back...


.. That's how I interpreted this. And I like it.
