Random Poem:

words-spaces between us

it gets worse
by the minute
will we ever have
for each other
we're holding hands
they're pulling them apart
our endless struggle
for happiness
could save
all that we stand for
all I feel are your fingertips
steadily fading
into the distance
I can't see you at all
just an invisible barrier
hidden in the darkness
as I search for your voice
fading into
a lingering
that won't vanish
all I have are the words
I once heard you say
but all I hear
are the spaces
between them
