A sea in between

A sea in between

A Poem by Threads

A cathartic piece, to rest easy

And there you are, an ocean away
Do you have to be an ocean away?

I feel these memories
and they smell of joy
There, petrichor is not quite comparable;
for my soul has tasted drought

If ever there was Reason 
that I should be torn in two,
been given a foot in the door but slam shut over my shoe
given a day my Reason 
fail me, there I take in queue

For now I tell my heart to wane,
give time and not pain
when yearning would take me to Mars,
set down steel and gaze at stars

A distance heart would forgive
my mind could never -- let live
My Sweet those dreams
will ever be
but dreams

For you, 
I set a candle (its wax will not ebb)
in my heart (I set it high)
To be seen across seas

I have always had issues with consistency, but some things just prompt me back to the world of writing.
