come back



both lost
unknowingly
both searching for the way,
persistent and struggling
to fill the hole of lost opportunities
busy, misguided, struggling
with irreparable damages
would it be possible,
we both reach out simultaneously
and find the other there
as we languidly seek refuge
falling back into the comfortable pretense
of our existence

  2. Very good words for the day, at least my day. Not sure it is possible, not to be comfortable anyway.

  3. We all seem to gravitate back to our comfort zones whether they are good for us or not.
    ..........:-) Hugs

  4. "Comfortable pretense of our existence." Yikes. Beware. Danger danger Will Robinson. Sometimes we come dangerously close.

  6. I agree with Fareed, "Surreal"
    It's so wonderful, especially the last two lines. I loved the photo you put, the darkness in it helped me picture the poem's atmosphere.

  7. A void to be filled by those searching to fall in and find what they are looking for

  16. What a subtle sadness from the land of shadows

    both lost their way,
    both looking for magic risky love...
    exactly
    they are both

    Kay, thanks a lot!
