Trying to Find You Out There

by Jillian Spiridon 5 months ago in fact or fiction

I'm searching just to see you again.

lay down the map to your heart, fine and true,

all the criss-cross lines of who you are deep;

I'll traverse the ocean just to be near,

searching for your keen, lone destination.

your travels took you far, beyond my sphere,

every city like a ghost in neon,

each light a beacon in your vast darkness

where you didn't want me to see a thing.

you're the golden treasure, X marks the spot,

yet no compass can bring us to embrace.

east, west, north, south, on the winds I fly high—

all to reach the place where you hid away.

I'm not waiting on signs any longer,

yet I still long to see your smiling face.

find me, you shouldn't have said that last day

because I'll go to the ends of the earth

just for you.
