What I Found

What I Found

I sought The Mystical
Beyond physical
Alchemical,
Transcendental;
All, I gave;
Ultimately,
Not claimed.
A union declared
But left adrift,
Half, Tending the Share –
Half, Not willing to care.
Illness then came:
Hunger, longing, Despair.
No affection, nor tenderness,
No Support nor belief –
Instead politeness, detachment,
Cool ennui.
No sense of Home –
Left
Bereft
I found Myself:

Alone.

Just a guy directly challenged to write and share my experiences. This is not easy.
