Yearning

As I search  the roads of this eternal maze

I just find dark corners and more dead ends 

Searching and searching  to ignite the blaze

With short term lovers or just good friends
Where is the love I am yearning towards

To worship my body and cherish my mind

The soul mate, lover, giver of rewards

The man to care for this heart in kind
 I know that  love is a two way process

Give in order to recieve: I understand

Love unrewarded  no forward progress

As I travel the maze on roads of sand
Hopeless it feels, a lovers touch I crave

Before I am called to the end, the grave.

Ups and Downs

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 Joy and heartbreak

do the rounds

Would that our lives

 could, just be pleasure

No pain or woe 

for us to measure.
Why is it, things

 go so wrong?

Bad things happen 

not like in songs

How do I deal 

with the days

 that are black

When the roof 

caves in

The cheque

bounces back

I have to dig

in deep

To my reserves 

my internal resevoir. 

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 joy and heartbreak

do the rounds.
