I used to fear you
Your unwelcome arrival
Long, unwanted stays

I did not know your name
So I called you “the nothing”

You left me empty
Stranded at sea
Wandering the desert

I twitched and paced
Restless, loud
The cage of my mind
Carrying on

I hated the scenery
At the water’s edge

I looked for salvation
On a distant shore

Till one day
I heard you
Gorgeous, divine

Silence.

And my mind stammered

No wonder I missed you
Though you were always
RIGHT HERE

Your footprint
Vanished by waves
Your words
Were none at all

You were always-
Unattainable

Refusing to be-
Defined
Limited
Tamed

You were always
There, in me

You are nothing
You are everything
You are love
