A translucent shine

shimmering before my eyes

a wisp of a something

that fills my soul with

caving emptiness

craving more and more

of what it is that I do not know

right before my hand

I reach to touch

but it melts before

the hand can grasp

a longing desire

to understand and

hold what I feel I have missed

a hole in my life

that I cannot go back and fix

A Translucent Shine
