Where did I lose it?
Is it here, is it there?
Or is it anywhere?!

What are you looking for,
Says the look in his eyes
I fish for it in every nook,
And what I get back, is an opaque look
Doesn’t the amber lasts forever?
Yes, but only in books.

Are you hidden in there?
I ask his silent heart
It doesn’t skip a beat, nor races fast
I feel a lump go down the throat
But mind plays game
‘Search for it again, without any shame’

The search begins again
This time around his arms,
For that same feeling
But where’s the warmth?

Those sweet li’l nothings
That meant so much
Suddenly come across
As a stupid bunch,
And I search this bunch
For it once had my vice,
Yes, my love, labeled as vice
Because with time, greed took its side.

So what if love is vice, give it a thought
‘But I’ve other plans, tag along or not’
In these words of his,
I still search for a hint
A hope that it might be there
For it was there in the past,
In words, in action, in everything that passed

Now I don't know if it is gone
Gone with the wind
I’ve got sand in my shoes
And memories of a beautiful walk
Of togetherness, of bliss...
But this poem, my friend,
It is mere catharsis.
