forms of love

forms of love

A Poem by Rana Adalwolfa Simon

A poem written for day 17 of National Poetry Month. Inspired, amusingly so, by reflecting on a fan fiction I wrote in high school.


Perceived perfection

So untouchable

Desperation grasping

Yet held far out of reach

Cherished in heartbreak

Preserved beyond embrace

Separation prevents


A sacrifice

With nothing gained

Presumed paltry

Defective at distance

Horrid by the mile

Yet proximity brings tranquility

Intimacy that

Mends the mirror

Seals the cracks

Rudimentary becomes 


A sacrifice

Which gains everything
