Space Time Continuum
The Milky Way
Does the Space-time continuum really exist?
I have no idea.
My mind struggles with the concept.
Are space and duration truly the same thing?
Does it really matter?
The relativity of dimensions by reference to consciousness.
Or does it explain the chasm than can exist when standing side by side?
Or the intimacy shared when miles apart?
Perhaps there is a Special Relativity of Relationships
for Stephen Hawking to unravel.

I'm very new to the world of poetry and this is my sixth poem. As you can probably tell I'm experimenting with the poetry that I'm writing, trying to do something a little different each time.
This piece was created around the word chasm and a comment I left on PDXKaroakeGuy's hub Foreign . His poem made me think about how physical closeness is not connected to the closeness of a relationship.
I wanted it to be a thought provoking poem rather than an emotional one.
I found the comment from Frederick Buechner below which I felt complimented the point that I am trying to make.
You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.
