Poetry – Reaching

Reaching for what is not there

Reaching out

Being turned away

Denied and misguided

You are gone

And I cannot grasp

What I cannot understand

Unable to stay

And unwilling to leave

In search for something

You cannot give 

In search of happiness

That you never had

That is devoid 

Of who you are

Longing for pain

To cease

The road to be covered

I am alone

Craving to be lost

In search of what I need

Fearing to wither and lose

Free of the guilt that has been there

To be found again
