empty soul

my arms and
heart stretch
out
to you

reaching
searching
trying to
find you

my eyes ache
from the
love i can
not see

my feet tire
on the
road i can
not find

and you
it is only
you that
i seek

in every word
that my
breath takes
from me

in every thought
that crowds
my darkened
mind

but i have
failed
again
i have
failed

where was
my strength
when
my strength
you needed

where was
my wisdom
when
my wisdom
you required

lost
again
lost
and
apart

all i
can do
is wait
for your
smile

all i
can do
is run
towards your
arms

lost we
may be
lost and
forgotten

but if
we can
just find
each
other

perhaps
we
shall
yet
survive
