The Journey


Haven’t been home in a year or more
Don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow
Runnin’ down this dusty road
into the midnight sun.
We drifted apart,
shadows searching
It goes on
and on.


This found poem was written in response to the Poetic Asides prompt for April 10, asking for a poem about travel. All lines are taken from song lyrics sung by the band Journey, including lines from Don’t Stop Believin’, Faithfully, Open Arms and Wheel in the Sky. The form is a variation on the “melting snowball” with each successive line having one less syllable than the line preceding it.
