--- Relentless Echo ---

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy

With the passing of each day
Our chasm yawns farther agape,
as if some living, ravenous
thing in search of its next feed.


From my side, you are now but
a speck atop the far wall.
I turn away, and for a while ...
I suffer your absence well.


Yet even with my back to you
there is no escape, for you are
also the whispered echo cutting
through me like a January wind.


You are my relentless echo.

ohhh boy! when one can turn no way and not hear the voices it could be trouble ... those relationships "do not go gentle into that goodnight" do they .. thought the lines become drawn and stretched the hooks loose their shine ... yet they remain .. cold, cruel echoing ... eeeeeyow! good one Creepy! certainly got me going ..

Ooooh, niiiice!! The imagery of a grand canyon that is ever widening to express the divide between people and the echo of your attachment to the person not being able to be severed despite your distance from each other. Such rich language! Love! Well done.
