Back To You


Back To You

My shoes are worn
cause I have walked
through every maze
in search of love
I am a proud knight
riding lonely carousels
searching for a lady
while fighting windmills
dead ends always greet me
as I move in no direction
I missed you here
nostalgic over there
a journey never ends
when shortcuts don’t exist
I strolled down winding roads
traveled both sides of the fork
without the use of a compass
I found out I was never lost
cause it doesn’t matter what road I take
when every path leads me back to you

  1. Oh… this is gorgeous. It feels a bit sad at first but the end is beautiful. Doesn’t matter what path you take… you’ll still get where you’re meant to go. It’s lovely, Andrew. And the title struck me because I wrote a short story with the same title a few years ago. Maybe another one I should revisit. Beautiful words.

    • Please remember there is always hope. That is something we should always cling to. Yeah, there are times we can feels so powerless in love and we find dead ends and never ending carousels. But we can’t give up. Love is always there. Thanks for your kindness. Have a great day S.

  4. The first phrase that popped into mind was “the search for love.” This is an elegant, gentle, expressive piece that walks us through the trails of love and emotion. Wouldn’t it be nice if each of us could genuinely directly look into our spouses or significant other’s eyes and express the feeling “every path leads me back to you.”

    Side Note: There might be a misspelling in the 13th word. You wrote searched. Did you mean search?

  5. I love the way you write poetry it’s so beautiful. Love definitely has its twists and turns and roads and roadblocks and yet we still need and want everything about it. It’s the one thing that we can both live and die for. Very nicely written.

  7. Lonely Author – reading this post at the end of my day was the highlight of my day. πŸ˜€ Thank you for that! So touching. I needed this. I hope you have found your lady, for she is very lucky! πŸ™‚ Is Rachel Bilson your type?! Once again, I am really glad I just so happened to ‘stumble’ upon your blog!

  10. All paths lead to Rome they say. I love the sense of predestined happenings that emanates from your beautiful poem. I am a big believer in free will although the idea of destiny and fate does appeal to me.
