I am looking 
are you there? 
Out here is sunlit 
bright breeze
I can see forever 

Down there is shadowed 
dark stillness

Why do you not come out? 
Why must I enter 
where we cannot really see each other? 

Why am I even searching?

Thanks to The Mag

Sounds hopeless .. not giving up is the solution. Very nice!

I guess we just stop searching when we no longer breath... Nice post!.

Your poem is a curiosity, pandora's box sort of thing..... who is lurking in the shadows? I enjoyed the contrasts between lightness and darkness. Thank you for sharing this.
