I Came Looking

I came looking for solace
But you only gave me pain
I came looking for sunshine
But you only offered rain

I came looking for safety
By my soul you then abused
I came looking for a touch
But you left me feeling used

I came looking for wealth
But you gave me a pittance
I came looking for passion
But you gave me impotence

I come looking for a song
But you sang me a lament
I came looking for repose
But you only gave dissent

I came looking for a feast
But you offered me a crumb
I came for tender embrace
But you left me feeling numb

I came looking for love
But you showed me your disdain
When you come looking for grace
I will only give you pain.

    Thanks for wishing me luck, Mr Seal....I do not need luck! I depend on my astute gift of discernment....which is not full proof, I must admit. It is, however, almost always ON THE MONEY! Thank you or TAKING THE TIME to read this humble little rhyme of mine. The time invested in doing that is GREATLY appreciated.
