searching for myself

by Elouise

This poem came to mind yesterday.
First published 10 Feb 2015, it captures the vulnerability of a lonely soul.
Lost and looking for relief in all the wrong places.

searching for myself
lost somewhere out there
in your eyes your smile
your listening ear
your approval your tenderness
your dream for me

are you an artist? a poet?
a musician? a sensitive soul?
maybe you can help me
find myself
I think I love you or do I see
a lovely reflection of my
still-lost self in you?
