Searching - Poem by Austin Jeffrey

i called your name
it brought me pain
i said i care
you said dont dare
i dont blame you for rejecting
i am the one who is searching

i know this game
brings you fame
but i think there is someone
for everyone
i think i am retiring
i am the one who is searching

when you were weak
i was strong
when you cried
i was aiways by your side
but in my hours of despair
you werent there
i think am crying
i am the one who is searching

i looked for joy
i found pain
girl with you
life isnt the same
thats why i am leaving
i am the one who is searching
