The Lost Soul

“The Lost Soul”

by Derek Felix AKA DFlex


It’s old, dark and gray outside

With a hint of rain drops falling from the sky

In a poetic way, there’s something to hide

Making the darkness make me question why

The morning drive is a cool dreary one

As if the other cars don’t matter

It’s not a day that will see the sun

I’m just awaiting the pitter patter

When it’s over and done

Rain will follow as the day goes on

Turning windy and cooler without fun

A violent howl of wind indicates better days are gone

Followed by a heavier rainfall into the night

That will make you stop and think

With a hidden message that nothing’s gone right

Don’t fall asleep, you might miss it if you blink

As colder air moves into this place

Reminding that winter’s coming and the end of fall

Feel the late autumn breeze hit your face

As our warm spirit ends into the lost soul
