Are You? Are you the piece missing/ fro the puzzle of my life?/ Are you the chord missing/ from my symphony of longing?/ Are you the light at the end/ of my barren bleak tunnel?/ Are you the star that makes/ my every wish come true?/ I am sure you are. Are you?

The imagery you invoke in this piece is beautifully haunting. It’s only a few lines but I can’t stop reading it over and over. Easily one of my favorites already, keep creating such iconic work!!
I’m so happy you enjoyed this poem! It is truly an evocative piece.
