How do you fill the last sentence?

Where are you?
How can I capture you?
I think to have graced it merely a handful of times
Is it love? Intimacy? Purpose? Religion? More?

Only you have the power to emulate ecstasy
We seek knowledge to try and acquire utter happiness,
But this is the same reason why we can’t
How can someone be completely content?
Is it only by temporary stretches of time?

The most thrilling experience?
To catch something perceived uncatchable
Thriving to seize it causes genuine fulfillment
But…what happens when you do?

Is the root of _____ eternal pursuit?

I wrote this poem in my last semester of college — in 2012. I was thinking a lot about what I should do next. You can find my answer in the link to this post.
