No one ever came back.

No one ever came back.

A Poem by Fairy Khan
"

Inspired by "Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Murakami.

"
I wandered too far
in the darkness,
looking for you,
running after the shadows
and the glimmers,
I thought belonged to you,
but I wandered too far.

I kept following the sounds,
the echoes,
of happiness lamenting
and melancholy laughing,
and I found nothing,
no one, but solitude;
and I never came back.

I wandered too far,
but I found what it meant
to live,
to wander endlessly,
'til I found myself;
but I wandered too far,
and I withdrew.

The most important thing in this piece Fairy is that you found yourself. It took time and you wandered far, but you got there in the end.

Thank you for reading.
A nice tale in the poem my friend. Wandering into the unknown seeking someone. Can be a scary journey. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

I love your message about the struggle between letting go & holding back. This push-and-pull is depicted in a palpable way. Yet, I saw a different meaning, too . . . about how sometimes there are friends who suck you dry . . . taking, taking, taking . . . needy & not giving back. Eventually we've gone too far in their direction & we have to withdraw to save ourselves & to rekindle our joy (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Although meanings are subjective, but the meaning that I wrote it with is more aligned to your secon.. read more
I felt the poet withdraw to protect themselves from hurt. A very instinctive and wise thing to do. Its always wise to retreat if one doesn't get the right vibes. Appreciated very much.

Thank you for the visit.
sometimes we withdraw so far into ourselves there is no coming back...
it is really the saddest when we see that happening to someone we care about and there is no solution.
And we know it...we cannot save those who have no want or intention to be saved.
really intense write here.
