What is it that I am missing?

What is it that I am missing,

that words cannot convey?

There is a void like a deep ravine,

It’s screaming, “Come find me here inside!”

From dawn to dusk, my eyes are searching;

My ears listening for direction.

My heart knows; I can taste the sweetness, yet it is still so elusive.

What is this, calling out my name;

Beckoning me forward, regardless of my state?

One step forward,

Two steps back,

How long will be the journey,

Spanning from year to year?

What is it that I am missing,

that words cannot convey?
