    You left me lonely
    Where could you be?
    I have spent hours, even days
    trying to locate the one thing that
    continuously sets me free.
    That cleanses me so deeply
    I am beginning to think
    you no longer love me,
    no longer feel me,
    cause I haven’t felt you
    since the last time you spoke to me
    and that was so long ago
    that I have forgotten your voice
    Your disappearing act
    has gotten me down
    And while I have posted
    your picture on every
    milk carton in town,
    no one seems to know
    your dwelling place –
    It’s almost like you erased
    yourself from existence
    In fact, the only evidence
    of your being lies in the
    dark gray traces of lead
    in my “book of life”,
    which without you
    will remain incomplete,
    For many chapters still
    wait to be told…
    People say you’ll be back,
    that you would never really go
    but I’m not so sure
    because you’ve never
    been gone this long before
    and it is literally killing me
    You got me putting out APB’s
    on your whereabouts
    but I doubt very seriously
    that this method of search
    will benefit me much…
    Perhaps if I looked inwardly
    I could see that you really
    have never left me
    perhaps you’ve just become dormant
    in my psyche, allowing my
    spirit rest and recovery
    from the pain that stings
    every time I bleed my ink
    onto the page and give it life.
    However, the blinds are closed
    to my inner sanctum, blocking
    my revelation from view
    and I’m left still missing you
    I’m longing for you to
    incite my potential to a level of greatness
    I’m waiting for you to help me
    spill my guts in a peaceful cathartic rage…
    But you’ve hidden yourself from me
    so I’m continually looking, searching
    to be inhabited again by
    poetry.

    Search no more my dear...

    For it shall appear not far but near
    not out but in the words u speak
    as u breath poetry in the ear
    of mentals as u seek...

    It's there feeding your soul nourishing
    the mind so that over time u will be
    the epiphany of beauty giving life to
    words birthing knowledge...

    It's there intamately unconditionally
    in love with the soul u possess entwined
    in wisdom manifesting through the
    Spirit of life...
    U.

    Nice Scribe here boo!!
    I like!!
