Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (poem)

Updated on August 28, 2014

Didn’t I tell you to go

The person who you search for

Doesn’t live here anymore


Gone are his ways

Questions he’d raise

Magic display

His morning’s rays

End to dismays

Wonders ablaze

Nothing but praise

Gone are those days

Didn’t I tell you to go


The person who you search for

Doesn’t live here anymore


No more to believe

No fairytales weave

Which life would conceive

No tricks up some sleeve

For human reprieve

No note did he leave

No clues to retrieve

It’s hard to conceive

Didn’t I ask you to go

What you are searching for


Doesn’t live here anymore


Emptiness now fills his place

No more can his smile embrace

Without him must our future face

Memories now weave a trace

Essences in hearts now pace

In our soul it finds its space

In us he has found his grace

Now up to us a way replace

And so we ask you to go

For the one whom you search for

Doesn’t live here anymore

      I could actually feel the emotion the narrator was feeling. All the frustration and other negative feelings were excellently conveyed in the way you wrote.

      I like this poem. The repetition adds despair seemingly more to the talker than the searcher. Interesting!
