consistent misplacement

i lose.
pieces i never found.
you ask how
it is possible
to consistently misplace
sections i did not know
i was looking
for. it seems
there is always
something i cannot reach.
alone. again. inside.
four walls closing
toward a time
when i hear a knock
accompanying a request
to break a barrier;
a splintering enclosure.
what it seems
i have wanted
is to never be
found.
