LEFT – Vincent Eduard Manda

I left my mind
In a special place so long ago

I can’t find this place now
This place that holds my heart and mind.

I lost my memory
A long time ago
Lost it for something that just wasn’t worth it.

Now try as hard as I may
I can’t find that beautiful place
I’ve searched and searched
Within and without

But my mind has gone
To that very delicate place,
It does not wish to be found.

I can not remember

Yet they all look at me and say
‘It’s an easy thing to find,
One’s mind;
Failing that, just find another…’

But they don’t know
How my memories and feelings too
Have gone to that place,
That stage that will forever
Possess my heart and that which was mine

It was my mind,
There can be no other.

    1. How are you doing these days? This is beautiful sad…it reminds me a little of an episode from Star Trek DS9 (apologies for the nerdiness), where the prophets explain non-linear time…”You live here,” they say, at a moment past…from which it was/is impossible to move on, despite time’s passing…Take care.

      • Hey, Thank you for your comment. I think it might need a bit of an edit. Haha no worries, I never really got into Star Trek but I love the movies and I myself am a huge Star Wars fan. I also like 2001: A Space Odyssey and am about to start reading the book. I will look into that episode though Apart from that I am well, just trying to survive. How are you?

        • I’m doing well, pretty much the same as you 🙂 The DS9 Season is a little more complex and ‘spiritual’ than the other Star Trek series. A bit dated now I guess, but still some worthwhile stuff in there. 2001 is pretty trippy (in a good way) 🙂
