This little lush poem is about a woman finding her true love partner and devoured in the power of sexiness. 3rd Ear Girl is still looking for ‘The One’, but it doesn’t stop her writing about him.
Lost is a poem reflecting the inner emotions of depression. I originally published this in 2006 and decided to bring it out of the vault to share at a time when so many people are going through dark times. Believe me, I understand.
Each day I wake up thinking to myself
Can I make it through another day of hell?
Don’t wanna get out of bed
But I’ve gotta shake these voices in my head
They’ve got me wishing I was dead
Or someplace else instead
Of this life of fighting a losing battle
Can’t get on my saddle and take control
Feels like I’m losing my soul
My dreams, my self-respect, my ambitions
All replaced with fear
Waiting in vain for a better tomorrow
But damn! There goes another year
And I’m still here, in the same shit
The same sorry-assed merry-go-round
The cold reality in this lonely world
