303 Echo [06 May 2000]

a cry echoes
across the endlessness
called space
a sound filled
with sorrow
fear and helplessness
so much is communicated
through the waves that flow
across this space called life
it is the cry
of the billions of hearts
that long for that promise
of love
within it is found
the fear of the unknown
the sorrow of their aching hearts
and the helplessness
they feel in losing
any contact with love
it is a sound
that reverberates within every person’s soul
moving through every heart
and searched for with every eye
yet with each one
that desires this world of two
only few ever find
its true self
some meet a substitute
deemed to be love
but end up in sadness.
For that soul-consuming feeling,
of the completion found with another
and I am no exception
love is so powerful
that I have spent long nights
crying out
hollow inside
but for the echo of my despair
yet it seems
that this longed for relationship
may be all a product
of one’s mind
many deny that possibility for how
can a world exist
without the magic of love
and so my journey
as with many others
I walk the path of life
looking all around me
for a glimpse
of that elusive other half
of our souls
that would be our salvation
