Searching Forever

Searching Forever

Searching through woods in the early morn

Shadows within my soul

Untouched by the rising sun

Where you taken? Did you run?

Curtains flutter with the first breath of spring.

Searching through time, mounting of sorrow

Another red x on calendar squares,

Marking the days of a room left unchanged.

Searching for answers to questions

Circling, tormenting my mind

Are you a small girl that died with a gasp?

Are you a young woman with a haunted past?

Searching faces for your blue eyes

Pale photographs faded with time

Your smile dancing across lips

Then fading away, a passing eclipse

Searching forever, forever finding

The forever sorrow, the forever pain.

How does it work?

I have been many things in the past, now I dabble in words, pictures and other medium to express myself. When the message becomes true to others, I have succeeded.
