Prose - So Close Yet So Far

Updated on November 19, 2010

The silence masks the feeling
Of time that is stealing
Our precious moments together
That we must endure whenever
We are apart as we are
A star gazing at a star
Wondering if we really know
From what it is we show
Cascaded by sheets of hope
Soothing the dream of both
While we exist in our separation
Controlling our desperation…

      @D. Juris - Thank you for commenting. It's interesting to reread something I wrote almost two years ago. Thank you for the kind words. Longing is a powerful emotion.

      Totally relate to the experience, being in somewhat the same position some time ago. You've worked it into a lovely piece.

      Loveslove,

      Thank you for the comment. I think what any writer hopes for is that personal connection with someone out there... someone they've never met... a stranger who shares the same feelings and experiences about life.

      Close but yet so far away given due consideration in verse. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing it. WB
