A Poem by Brian K. Walters

The Search
 
 
 
Show me the way
to a place I've never been.
Free from all this pain
where my soul can soar.
 
 
To taste her lips upon mine
as I finally feel her touch.
Oh, just to see her smile
with eyes warmed by love.
 
 
Take me away,
safely within her arms.
Convince me she's real
not simply a fools fantasy.
 
 
I have never seen her face
outside of my dreams.
Yet in my heart,
she must exist.
 
 
For if not..
What would be the purpose?
This is life.
Do we not only walk once?
 
 
The wounds are still fresh
inflicted by the pretenders.
Yet they are all I have found.
So, Who is pretending?
 
 
Why must I search
through years of pain?
Surely you must know
time is not endless?
 
 
Will I fade away
a man with an empty heart,
whose infinite journey
was sadly in vain?

I want to say so much- but I'm short on time- soooo...

I agree that this is sad, but there's still hope in the romance of this piece and thats good to see. because not everyone can go through what you've been through and still believe in love.
I will also add that I've read EVERY Piece you've ever written and there's no way your journey is in vain. I've learned too much from you to let you go on thinking its all for nothing.

You're one of a kind!!

We all seek the same thing and sadly stumble from one pretender to another each time convinced that maybe this is it. What separates them from the one and why is it our hearts are so easy to fool.

A poignant evocative write.
