The Search For Love - Poem by Practicing Poetess

You're searching for love
In all the wrong places
Wouldn't know it, if you saw it
Hidden in a million faces

How to find elusive love
When you're not sure what you seek
It would be much easier
If love would only speak

'Here I am! I am love!
Not a counterfeit, but true! '
But there's nothing, only silence,
In the ears of lonely you.

Like a needle in a haystack
Seems impossible to find
Yet, you still continue searching,
Though the search has been unkind.

Now, you begin to wonder
If it's all a game for fools.
But, to discover love,
You must have the right tools.

    Thank you, Louis! [3
    FINALLY, I get the honour of some of my poems (not necessarily those I consider my best) being audio-played by the PH female 'bot voice'- - but they recorded the ending at the beginning, and didn't start the beginning until the middle! Arrrrgh! ! ! :)

    Thank you, Kumar!
    I feel like it's a bit of a cliff-hanger here, because I didn't explain or elaborate on what the right tools are. But still, glad everyone is enjoying it! :)
