quest

byAlessia Brio©

wedged in the crevices of hope
longing for adoration
she throws herself in love's path
as if its proximity can complete
her, blind desperation

craving what others have
she seeks not
to destroy, but to lure
siren song to ego's ears
when… if…
she smells fulfillment

its source irrelevant,
shattered dreams litter
her landscape yet
she does not cede… will
not surrender the hunger

reaching for rainbows, she
goes down
swinging, trying too hard
and failing again to escape
her gravity
