I am hungry! Alone afflicted

Did you find any picture
Among my words?
They speak, someone's emotions.
They listen, someone's command.
Who is to listen?
And who is to speak?
I myself am answerless.

Can not tell even listening,
Whose sound is that?
Sitting isolated staring alone,
Gust of the the wind whistling it gone
Passing by the the ears the way it made
But still, unable to figure it out.
Who is she to speak?
Who is she, not unfolding
The mystery? Yet!

Do not put me in confusion.
I am seeking to know the mystery!
I don't want to stay craving
Holding more than thirst.
Speak, oh! speak! mysterious one
I can not stay unanswered.

Put me not confined
Within questions alone.
I am hungry! Alone, afflicted.
looking for the answer wandering!
Poem you are! Too vague
Oh! Supernatural fairy
I am wishing to draw that:
Evasive picture, again.
