This Restlessness

~

Love did not appease

this restlessness

that hangs in my heart,

a lighthouse in a distance

guiding me towards illusive shores.

And when will it give, if so far

from this flesh my mind soars

 high above, but this need

won’t placate.

Ashes will rise and fall

while memories are stranded

 in this restlessness

that hangs in my heart.

H.O

“Dreams and restless thoughts came flowing to him from the river, from the twinkling stars at night, from the sun’s melting rays. Dreams and a restlessness of the soul came to him.”

― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
