soul mates

A song (poem) about the emotional turmoil of a soul who yearns for love.


I am a song,


looking for a voice


to sing.



I am a gift,


hoping that someone


will bring.



I am a soul,


searching for a mate


to love.



I am a wish,


reaching for the stars


above.



I am a thought,


in search of meaning,


for a question never asked.


I am a prayer,


no one has uttered,


once in the distant past.



I am a memory,


Searching for a point


in time.



I am heart,


looking for a love


sublime.



I am faith,


Investigating proof


of life.



I am darkness,


looking for a ray


of light.



I am a quest,


in search of answers,


for a truth I cannot see.


I am a prayer,


I never thought to pray,


At night on bended knee.



I am a harbor,


waiting for a ship


To sail.



I am success,


Looking for a way


To fail.



I am hunger,


Where there is no way


To fill.



I am mortal,


At war against my strength


Of will.



I am a thought,


in search of meaning,


for a question never asked.


I am a prayer,


I never uttered,


once in the distant past.



I am passion,


Absent any worthy


Cause.



I am an ear,


Which never hears its


due applause.



I am a shoulder,


Upon which only sadness


Rests.



I am island


Where the castaway is


Loneliness.



I am a soul,


in need of healing,


by any power above.


I have a heart,


Tortured and bleeding,


By the absence of your love.
