Always Looking

Folder: 
The Rhythm of Love

Always looking for love
In all the wrong places
Always yearning for touch
Despite my old disgraces


Always looking for trust
Even after it's broken
Always looking through dust
Knowing the cycle is hopeless


Always looking for fun
Seeking time well wasted
Always keep looking up
Knowing sometimes I can't fake it


Always looking around
For signs that I'll make it
Always looking for ground
When the seas have me shaken


Always looking for truth
Despite all the countless lies
Always looking to you
Let me down so many times


Always looking behind
As the memories chase me
Always looking for time
To once more set myself free


Always looking
Never finding
Always seeking
Always trying


But still
Though I'll never find what I'm looking for
I'm always looking anyway


And still
Though I'll never see what I'm looking for
I'm always looking just the same


Always looking
Always searching
Always losing
Never learning


But still
I am always looking away

This is great RoC. You embody

This is great RoC.
You embody this spectrum with every stanza, not missing an inch of it.
Great read man.
Without turning over stones, or treading off the beaten path.. the scenery will always be predictable.
The vast minds seek more than the ordinary. Keep searching as you do and you will certainly come round a corner to find a hidden gold mine.


"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.
