counterlife

Written by: ANDREA TRAVIS

Wanting, waiting
Desperately seeking
Searching, eyes fading
Tears are streaking
Hope not abating

Looking for signs
Distant, heartbeat
Stars to align
To be complete
Have something as mine

Here within the void
Widening, berth
Love to be enjoyed
All that its worth 
Not to be toyed

Lost to life
Stranded, islet
Upon stormy strife
To be found yet
In the counterlife.
