Look At Me


I searched for you around corners unseen;
I was silent, I was loud, I was desperate.

You searched for others with anxious desire;
finding some, losing some, never finding what you wanted.

I searched for you through windows left open;
I was cautious, I was bold, I was invisible.

You searched for something unobtainable;
it wasn’t me, could never be me, it should have been me.

I searched for you in every open field;
I was indifferent, I was obvious, I was lonely.

You searched for years now wasted and gone;
turn around, look at me my love, it is never too late.
