Losing in Vain

image from weheartit

I hid myself away
While you were busy naming stars
And chasing dreams you never dreamed
But only copied down

Sometimes we learn so much about ourselves and others when we hide away. The photograph complimented the words beautifully. Best wishes. Jeff.

Love the poem, short, insightful, full of regret, I think, for not having seen the truth earlier... yeah, great title too.

To be sometimes alone and all with yourself ... that can give you so much energy.
Lovely poem.

Namaste

A thought provoking poem...sometimes I think we are too pre-occupied with chasing dreams, we forget ourselves and loved ones ~

I felt such sadness for both characters. One hid self, the other never found it.
