    She left a trail of bread crumbs
    So that he might find his way back
    A few scavengers happened along
    And made her clever trail a snack
    She drew a map of precise directions
    So that he would find his way home
    He left her map in a long forgotten place
    And he left her alone
    She sent him a message in a clear, shiny bottle
    That plainly stated the way
    The bottle was broken in a long, violent tempest,
    And she waits for an answer to this day
    She sends up a prayer to a higher being,
    Of whom she cannot see
    "If you're out there, could you please,
    Lead him back to me?"

      This is really cute. You reached for the common places (breadcrumbs, drawn map, massage in a bottle), that are almost archetypes for trying to reach someone (or something). It allowed you to speak through voice of a child. It made your longing incomprehensible by usual means of comprehension, hence very strong and touching.

    I had a mental image of a hapless girl who's been giving an ex-boyfriend all kinds of excuses to get back again with her. Only to be rebuffed. I also had the image of an absent-minded guy who had given all his time and energy to something else (eg. studies, games) and neglected the girlfriend. Very good imagery there! Fun too!

      I like this
    This write speaks of true love that has fallan away
    I really like the use of a bottle with a note in it as this could easily refer to love and how fragile it is
    A very good write
    Worded very well
    God Bless

      That's a real cutsey poem. Real warm and fuzzy. Not really my type of thing...not really too original, but the pace was good and rhyming, etc. It's alomost two poems in one. It could possibly have greater effect if it ended at "he left her alone" ??

      This is so good Rai, I love it sooo much. And...I think that the end captures it particularly well. Great job, really. but hey I love you and I think that if his home is indeed with you then he will come back...so that is your question...does he really belong there?

      very interesting. this, i must admit is an amazing peice with wonderful immagery. and not only that, but it doesnt have all that meaningless rambling and all those big words no one knows. it also lacks the whole "uhh... im lost" effect (thats a good thing). so keep up the good work, nice peice

    god bless,
