~::~ Piece Of Me ~::~


I’m searching for a part of me

A part that’s precious and esteemed

It’s been lost for eternity

I search but it was unredeemed

                A precious part of me it seemed

                Yet unfound for infinity

I have combed for it high & low

Through the various realms of earth

Hidden mocking, it lay furlough

Concealed it stayed, content and mirth

                Through all realms I tried to unearth

                The mocking part veiled & stowed

Clandestine union it would be

The day I find that missing piece

Atlast I’d be complete & free

All fears and anxieties would cease

                Contentment dwells & heart at peace

                When the missing piece completes me


I hope you liked the poetry, please leave your comments, feedback and brickbats
