Wandering Around The House - Poem by sharon wildey

Wandering around the house
Room to room
Trying to find myself
I am not to be found
Corner to corner
Room to room
Walking and walking around some more
Will it ever stop
Where am I
Not there and not here
No life
No love
Room to room
For something
For someone
For those who left me
They aren’t here
But I search anyway
Room to room
Corner to corner
Wandering like the goat in the desert
No food to nourish my soul
No water to quench my thirst
For them
Who left me
Here to die
In this house
With its empty rooms
Where I find nothing
Not even my mother
Or her ghost
In any corner
In any room
But the sound of my footsteps
To comfort me
