Missing Love

seeking love and can’t find it
I’m covered in love and can’t have it
love dises me and teases me
just out of my reach and flees from me
it alludes me…misuses and then abuses me
I feel I’ve been run over by love
I’ve been beaten down…
and knocked around by love
degraded and berated by it
love laughs in my face
and still I chase after it
love always manages to escape me
it avoids me at every turn
don’t know if I’ll ever learn
so difficult to catch love
I just want someone to match my love
give into my love and be my love
I’m so confounded by the thought of it
so hungry for a taste of it
I want to grab a hold of love
mold and then become one with it
willing to give up my soul for love
dear Lord forgive me for wanting love so
