Read Poem: SEEKING, by Carmen Silva

I search for you.
I look you up in this world,
Amongst the footsteps of time,
And I try to remember
How it feels not to be
Longing for love.

I search for you.
And the snowflakes fall
Like the petals of a flower
By the end of autumn.
Like the petals of a flower
From the summer of my heart.

I search for you.
I enclasp the petals of love
But I know those petals are
Snowflakes of the winter of my body.

I search for you.
I still hold in my palms
The melting snowflakes;
And my love is lost
In drops that keep on dripping
And hit with hollow sound
The earth of this world.
I search for you. But you are nowhere to be found.
