I AM STILL SEARCHING FOR YOU

When the city sleeps

And a tune of the evening

Haunts my silent ears in the thick of the night

I know I am still searching for you

 

When the errors that I made

In wanting to be warm again

Sting my cheek like  a slap

I know I am still searching for you

 

When a widow is angry with death

Wears flowers in her hair

Closes all windows ,like fingers in one fist

I know I am still searching for you

 

When I think I could go on loving like this

Never arriving at marriage

Or try to organize love like religion

Or in to rituals of stripping and recovering

I know I am still searching for you ….

 

When I think lust is becoming too private

Almost a foreigner to me

So, I can actually as usual do with out it

And stop at a time when no one else can

I know I am still searching for you …

 

When I study the  atlas

Looking for places far and cold

Where I can resettle in to outworn sweaters

And gaze at polar bears

I know I am still searching for you

 

When my abdomen aches in emptiness

Telephone is stuck on the wall

Inside two sockets like vacant eyes

I know I am still searching for you………

 

When I don’t want the moon

Or to hide my tears in the rain

Or to wait for another season

Or try  to touch the sky ……..

I know I have stopped searching for life
