Searching

SEARCHING

 

Sometimes I see you

just out of view

out of the corner of my eye

quick as a hummingbird in flight

and when I turn my head you’re gone

as if you were none

as if you were never there

vanishing into the air

 

Took the last exit

final train of thought so desperate

where the bridge had crumbled

and the road disappeared into rubble

trying to get to you

where a harsh wind blew

down a winding path

into desolation’s wrath

knocking on closed doors

not knowing what I’m looking for

but no one was home

in this land of desperation I roam

 

Changed my name a time or two

spinning bullets in a revolver so few

changed my address

another move in this game of chess

a new street in a new town

facing my shadow in a showdown

 

Tried a new scene

escaping old routines

changed my ways

hoping for better days

spent a lifetime

dodging Life’s mines

searching for myself

searching for you

Knocking on closed doors

never knowing what I’m looking for

but no one was home

in this land of desperation I roam
