searching for love

my beloved,

 

there is no love

so perfect

as your love for me

though i search

the entire surface of this earth

i cannot find it

 

the other loves

leave me empty

for yours alone

can fill this void in me

 

no one understands me

like you do

no one

 

though i try

to give myself

i fail to be received

though i try

to speak of my desire

it falls upon deaf ears

 

and there is this aching emptiness

where there once was only you

and i want you back

for you alone

can enter this vast cavern of my soul

you alone

know the way to the crevice

and i long to reveal myself to you

 

i revisit the places

where you have discovered me

hoping you will remember

and return

but the landscape has so changed

and i can’t find you there

 

still i wait

knowing

that you will keep searching

the entire surface of the earth

until you find your way back to me
