Lost on Isolation Road

Lost on Isolation Road
By Nomar Knight

No matter what choice I make
Life pulls me to Isolation Road
It snakes through darkness
Freezing air takes hold
Too late to fight it
Can't break the mode

First time swirling wind
Displayed my mistakes
Like a naked exhibitionist
My innocence did break
No one to comfort me
Drowning sorrow in a lake

When last I haunted Isolation Road
Pavement melted on a whim
Encased my essence in muck
Making prospects grim
Yet I tried to chip free
But reality grew dim

The sum of my choices sent me here
Now my heart grows cold
Zest for life entrapped in chains
Drowning while decisions get old
Surrounded by fear
Lost on Isolation Road

  1. Lovely poem, my friend, and you picked the perfect picture for it. I can swear I've been on the road before. Or is it just the isolation I feel?
