Your name

Its silly really
But I look for your name

With sieve in hand my mind looks for that name
One
By 
One 
The names fall through the cracks
.
.
.
But you are not there

I search to find you with my hand
My eyes carrying the lamp's head
Heart fueled
eagerly watching
waiting
For your name to strike that match

I look for your name
.
.
.
.
Your name.
To ignite me, 
Let the fire of your name spread through my bones
Let every syllable tug at my soul to untie the bonds of familiarity 
Let the flames fueled by my heart consume all traces of you
Let every alphabet's ashes surrender to the gentle winds of yesturday
Pray my tomorrows be rid of you


I look for your name 
.
.
.
.
.
.
To set me free
