This word prompt really hit me today for week 176 Saturday Centus.

I ended up writing a SEVERAL hundred word poem. Here's the first 100 words. To read other offerings use this single word prompt, just click here.

I’ve been looking in eyes my whole life through

Trying to seek out what I know now is you

I’ve been searching faces in places unseen

Trying to seek out some wonderful thing.

I’ve wandered highways in search of home

I’ve walked for miles…but still have need to roam

I’ve cried in anger and I’ve wept in despair

I’ve searched and searched…

…but you weren’t there.

Why haven’t you been looking for me?

Didn’t you feel my need?

Why haven’t you been looking for me?

I can’t believe you didn’t know.

But I found you now, I can’t let go.
