Quest – A reflection in woods


In that thickness 

of the deep mesh of woods

where the heart feels

the light is denied 

and it falls prey 

to the devouring reality

Those twisted twigs 

and tangled thoughts

And people living with broken truth

my doppelgänger

tries to find its true identity

Those little saplings 

of dreams and wishes

cursed by the scorching sun

dying by every moment

And failing miserably

A drought lasting a lifetime

which snatches and takes 

away the last sliver of light 

Those deep sinking 


A slimy quagmire of pain and angst

where my hope sinks and die

in the deep abyss on uncertainty

Those tall trees with its long shadows

casting those doubts in me

stripping me off

my serenity

I wonder 

with a lost gaze in my eyes

and wonders deeply

my savior, 

How will you find me

in this life so deep?
