Treasure Hunt

All over the places you inhabited, in all the nooks and 
crannies that you could be contained,
I looked for you, haunted, exploring all your haunts till I was fuzzy-brained.
Ready to give up, readier than I had been for being given up, I glanced up and realised that I had looked right through,
That searching beneath, beside, between, beyond, I had failed to look at you.

Now this is remarkable..but falls little short with certain hurried choice of words. Definitely your executive work.. Keep it up.

"readier than I had been for being given up" is exquisite. And I was getting used to the yellow :)
