Searching for my Love

Searching for my Love

A Poem by Nokycent
"

Wisdom is Jesus and Jesus is Wisdom

"

Searching for my Love

 

I left my house searching

For my love in the city yearning

Across and beneath every side

Behind and in front of my sight

Keenly I listened as I screamed

“Wisdom! Wisdom!” I was not ashamed

For that’s Him my heart loves

Him who knits together its two halves

I kept yelling and heeding to no avail  

My eyes grew pale and frail

 My shoes were soon wearing

Hope was tearing and apart falling

Distressed I traced my track back home

With my guts I braced for any storm

And indeed rains fell and the sun hit me as if to test

So I marched with all haste

That soon I found myself on the doorstep

Swallowing the bitter truth my forlorn tour was set

When behold! I found Him my life spouse!

Right inside my house.

I like that you are using rhyme as that constitutes a vital part for poems for me. However, I would alter the lines so that the rhyme words line up underneath at the end of each verse.

"Knits together its two halves" → nice one

Like DaVoid I didn't know you would go for a religious ending but it fits. I am only confused about the word 'widowhood'. Are you referring to the fact that we brush God aside, trying to make it on our own? If so, 'widowhood' does not really fit here; it would imply that God had died.

Great rhythm imo. It took some time to sense what you were telling because I did not know at first if this was romantic or religious (could be both).

I like the story line and how you ended in it in surprise.
Nice. Keep it up. :)
