Search For Love

Search For Love prose poem

Photo by K.Hurley

In younger years & on my own accord…I wasted so much time on you love, searching for validity of your created nature… seeking the same emotional high, others who’ve experienced you,
say, is in the vapors emitting from your exotic being.

Like an addict I’d walk helplessly in circles through the speak easy’s of hell’s establishment excessively tasting & drinking only an imitation of what I believed to be the true you, love. Only to arise in the morning sickly & irritated finding myself laying & staring in the face of a physical being I’d reference as another failed attempt in finding you love.

I’d return to the streets, scratching and clawing through difficult obstacles preventing me from reaching your emotional high LOVE…, battered and bruised due to afflicted hearts, personal agendas and BOLD insulting statements from those who just didn’t have a care in the world love.

But after entering the rehab center of self reflection, maturity & understanding…I realized, my focus on GOD & remaining patient, would allow the emotional high I’ve been seeking known as LOVE to be added unto me.

For by grace & favor I’ve received you LOVE 30, 60 & 100 fold.

More than a search for love, people wish their search for certainty bore fruit. So that they could share the comfort of complete faith.

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I’d sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned.

Please take my hand, for I am blind. I’ve lost my path and my sense of touch. I’ve fallen, for my hands and feet are behind. Please let me hear, for all is in a hush. My wrist and ankles
