The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us

A Poem by Ghost47

To distance's which become barriers - manu

How scary is the distance for it shows a future so blur,
Weakening the vision for a transformed body,
Like a bird that leaves the nest,
Never to be seen with the same lens again.

The pain that swells from within,
As the water no longer seeps into the soil,
For the distance separates one from home,
Leaving the land barren and fallow.

My flesh shall never come in contact with yours,
My words will be screamed into the air just to be carried away,
My word shall never reach your ears,
As my tears are soaked and stained in the pillow.

But despite the void that we blame for everything that happens,
You shall hear the words that even my inked diaries do not contain,
For the bond will not be for the sake of lust over flesh,
But the roots that help the plant grow into a tree.
