Searching For.....

 

I’m searching for silence, the absence of sound,

nothing to be heard from all around;

 

I don’t want a murmur, a twitter, a tweet,

I’m looking for silence that is so complete.

 

I’m searching for numbness, no feelings as such,

I don’t want to feel you, I don’t want your touch;

 

a lack of sensation that’s what I will seek,

no pleasure or pain to make me feel weak.

 

I’m searching for darkness, an enveloping black,

don’t want a glimmer of light to attack;

 

there has to be nothing, no vision at all,

so then I can be hidden when I take that fall.

 

A fall into nothing, it’s got to be made,

to recharge my batteries before I do fade;

 

I’m looking for ‘nothing’, a sensational lack,

there’s no way to know if I’ll want to come back.

 

There are moments when life, it becomes too hard to take,

an experience of over-load that makes my world quake;

 

I’ll search out a sanctuary, a place of comfort and peace,

where I’ll wait and see if all the turmoil will cease.
