LOST Issue 9
Published by LOST Magazine
Forget about time.
Bask in the sunlight.
Walk for miles.
Float in the ocean.
Bury your feet in sand.
Take a train that goes nowhere.
Stare out the window for hours.
Immerse yourself in books.
Lose yourself in museums.
Wander the streets aimlessly.
Stay in bed all day.
Listen to the endless sounds of nature.
Wait for the sun to rise.
Let the journey go on,
Until it no longer hurts inside.
