I'm not exactly super proud of this poem because I wrote for the sole purpose to enter a contest being held by Action Action. I was an honorable mention... Meaning I didn't win. I think if I had entered something more from the soul instead of something I struggled with I might have had a shot at 3rd place.

We lost our way to paradise,
When it was only a kiss away.
Our last song was vicious
And we lost.
Our voices rose and fell like song birds in a bath of blood.
We were so confident,
Our hearts had left their place on the starting line
And started running
Way too early, way too fast.
We lost our way to paradise.
Let’s try to find it again,
Even though the odds are against us when we begin.
We sang with all we had
And fell into failure.
We lost,
We lost our way to paradise.
Let’s kiss in the car and we’ll try again.
We’ll find the way I swear we will.
The way to paradise is ours alone.
Ours alone.
We lost the way to paradise,
But we found the way again.
The road is so precious and it’s ours again.
