The lost self

Where am I
Now lost in the dark
Stripped down to my core
Love now recognized in my loneliness
For there is some truth even in a lie
The difference not being a question of reason
But a finite line
Truth and lie separated only by time and will
How did I fail to notice
Fleeing in the night
The further I ran
No matter which direction
The closer I got
Reflections from depression
Hope renewed
A vicious cycle to be repeated
Neither love song 
Nor sad song
Can change the truth
My heart desired to reach this point
My mind avoiding it
What remains
Therein lies the contradiction
Stripped down to my core
Now lost in the dark
Where am I

    A good search we all endure during this one life time, Wayland..

    I never mind, and I can see there is hope and you will be anew, but I will be reading as will call it catch up.

    'The further I ran No matter which direction The closer I got' Like these lines...applicable to all of us as we try to run away from our love or responsibility...... nicely done...
