I search deep within me,
For the emotion I must have.
Where can it be found?
Where can I reclaim it?

Somewhere in my heart,
With its pulsing life?
Somewhere in my mind,
The center of my thoughts?

Somewhere in my soul,
The center of my being?
Where can my emotion hide?
Has it gone into recession?

I feel empty, not whole.
I am here, yet I am not.
I sense what I can not see.
I hear voices call to me.

Nothing is the same.
The wind has been tamed,
The mighty ocean, calmed.
The burning sun, dimmed.

All I can do is wait,
And search for my feelings.
Look for my emotions,
That may be gone forever.
