So Far Apart

Half a world away by mind,

Tangled by soul,

Exactly two feet apart by distance.

Breathing in words,

Breathing out emotion,

Misted in rain.

Phrases unsaid,

Movements kept safe,

Just this.

A melody of voices,

A rhythm of tears,

Watched only by the clouds.

Frozen in place by thoughts,

Minds racing,

So close and so far apart.
