Roamed about in this wild world,
Forever, and beyond,
Feet ragged from an eternal journey,
Heart as cold as stone,
No sight, left unseen here,
Or so my mind assumed,
A strange voyage this has been,
The elusive unknown I hope to find,
Deciphering the codes of my soul,
I try to know, the yearning of a kind,
A futile quest until now,
Been to numerous places, I have,
Far and wide, scattered,
None, ensnaring my heart,
Captivating me, holding on!
Until I stumbled onto this place,
And caught a glimpse of you,
Skipping a beat, my heart ground,
To a sudden halt!
A purpose achieved or so it seemed,
Welling up inside me was relief,
The hurt, the pain ebbing away!
Yet you seem nonchalant,
Ignoring the plea in my eyes,
You make this destination seem,
A heart-rending mirage,
For once this nomad had found refuge,
But you give me no reason to hold on!
I must.......move on!
