II Poetry Contest: THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

by The Lost Girl

I’ve lost myself.
And I’m searching for me;
In the fields,
Near the old swing,
Under the mango tree where the cuckoo sings.

I try calling out my name.
Maybe I’ll listen.
Maybe I’ll answer to my calls.
“Come back,
From wherever you’ve wandered.
Come back
And let me be myself again.”
