Longing (revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

She knew something

of longing

Ache in her soul

that would awaken

without warning

Tears that welled up

unbidden

In her eyes

Pain in her chest

as if something

someone

Was squeezing

her heart

her lungs

pressing downward

making it hard

to breath

 

Yes

she knew something

of longing

That sense that

something

indefinable

unnamed

was

missing

Person

Place

Thing

Part of her soul

She was never

sure which one

 

She knew something

of longing

Loneliness

Isolation

When alone

or surrounded

by a crowd

Never fully seen

Never fully heard

Never truly revealed

Invisible

to the naked eye

 

Longing

Perhaps

Was the search

for eyes

on a city street

book store

coffee shop

That would

look into

her deepest

darkest

corners

And chose not to

look away

She knew something

of longing

  1. This was so wonderfully said!!! Loved your presentation format and the lines – “Was the search

    for eyes

    on a city street

    book store

    coffee shop

    That would

    look into

    her deepest

    darkest

    corners

    And chose not to

    look away”
