The Unfound

A set of scary scenes flashed before the sunrise—

crashed with my half-open eyes,

body froze, 

heart raced. 

In the pause of time i caught your presence.

You walked past without a glance around.

I was trapped in the chamber of illusion,

living in a foreign space,

with no familiar faces to recall.

Only i could feel

the starvation in my mind.

I was fed

with the absence of you. 

Like a lost dog, I searched this road,

looking for a shelter

to rescue this mirage of your shade,

and lead me back home.
