“Lost” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Lost”

By Ashley O’Hare

I’m running on a treadmill;

Left foot, right.

I’ve gone nowhere

and I’ve lost my fight.

The deadline was set-

tomorrow night.

It’s impossible-

I’ll never get there in time.

Useless formulas

soak up crucial space in my mind.

I can find a brick’s force of gravity

but not the point of my life.

I’ve read the books,

I’ve heard the lectures-

they say I’m on a path,

but I’m not so sure.

I lost my light

six years back.

Now I am lost

without a map

in sight.
