In search of you

Searching for you I found the abyss.

Its mouth opened wide at my feet.

Within lay the promise of peace.

Without – my heart’s stilted beat

Relentlessly cried.


My gaze drew me near.

Its calling resounded. Steep –

The courage of fear.

A reckless desire to leap

Sternly defied.


My fingers rip open the clay,

Fashion bricks into walls.

The craving of you kept at bay

By a silence that stalls.

Dreams subside.


I watch the fragments of time,

The distance that grows unimpeded

Between us: a rampant of lime

With doubts and forgetfulness seeded.

Wishfully tied.
