Searching

Written by: Samantha J Harrison

I stare into open space unaware, unyielding 
I picture myself small, insignificant against the magnitude that is 
Faces once pictured in memorised frames, cascades the empty hallways
Hands once held touch almost forgotten,
I search for belonging, grappling, dislodging beliefs needed to consume, protect my turmoil
Held at arm’s length I create so I might evoke 
But dislodged I turn inwards contorting to gain strength
