Searching

Ironically, for you.

I am looking
searching frantically
for a way to escape the bonds
that you have restricted me with.

I am looking
searching desperately
for a way to purge
the stubborn pieces of you that still
live in me.

I am looking
searching relentlessly
for a way to protect
myself against the sting that is the memories
of both you and I happy.

I am looking
searching neverendingly
for a way to forget you.

But I doubt
I ever will find
what I undoubtedly need
to heal.

Why?

Because what I am searching for
What I need

is you.
