and again

And again 

I miss the nothingness

And again

I yearn for something 

which isn't there

Never was 

and Never will be

And again

the tear of joy

becomes

a drop of myrth

upon pink lips

Incense of ashes

with golden ends

And again

I wonder

Why I'm still here

Why do i come back

What for ?

I must leave 

I must go

Afar 

from a shelter

which won't

protect me

Distant

from a nest

which 

dripples honey

in empty wells

Wells

too shallow

to get to

And again

I have

to travel

to a place

I do not know

to a horizon

without a line

And again

I'll be the vagabond

not to be searched for

nor to be found.

    "Distant/from a nest/which dripples honey/in empty wells"...So sad, Charmaine. "I'll be the vagabond/ not to be searched for/ nor to be found." ... Heartbreaking verse, talented Poetess. TMFs. Smile! : ) Ruben.

    The first reading it seemed sad, but on second reading I got a sense of almost hope that you will reach your goal. Beautiful poem.

    Sad lines here, Charma. I can find many possible meanings within these words....take several different angles. Although sad, I like the new direction your writing is taking and hope that you expand on it some more
