Theme VI: Loss, “Mouthpiece”

By Connor Peters

My lost opportunity.
My lost innocence.
My lost hope.
Only you–you are the only loss I regret.
I lost what I never had.
Because people can’t belong to people.
Why doesn’t anyone ever tell you that?
No matter how young, or how old,
everyone should be told.
I guess I can be the mouthpiece.
Know:
whether you’re hand in hand,
or miles apart,
no one can own a heart.
