Something So Elusive

What’s missing from my world
is the most essential element,
the most basic emotion: love.

Searching for something so elusive,
I was not so lucky to have found it,
I only got burned and wounded.

And the hunt continues, as I grow
ever more isolated and downhearted,
with each stab at my very soul.
