Hey Namo!

You corrupted
my good character
and stole me from
the time of no troubles.

The laughter of my
mouth is nowhere like
a lost sheep outside
the cold November night.

I am hypnotized
by the eyes of your
long and humid horizon.

There, I find myself lost.

    At first, I read Namo as “NaNo”, as in NaNoWriMo. I was really confused why you would write a poem to NaNoWriMo until I reread the title :b That aside, this is a really good poem, I really like the imagery!
