Pieces Lost

Something I wrote awhile back. Feel free to critique.

They say it’s never too late to fix what’s broken

But what if the pieces have dissolved?

What if they’ve disappeared and turned to nothing?

How do you find the pieces that are lost forever?


Maybe it’s been so long that you’ve forgotten

Where you left them last or if

They were even together in the first place

They may not be special enough to remember


So I suppose you can send out a search party

To find the missing pieces and yet

If you really wanted them together to begin

You wouldn’t have forgotten where you put them


When the search fails because your memory

Of what’s good is completely lost

You can force yourself to forget again

Or you can simply begin your journey anew.

The End
