Separation


Separation

Now we have agreed
to keep behind us
this difficult
uneasy distance
I can only give you words,
hold you coldly
in their syllables
and punctuate the silences
with awkward question marks.

Yet I persist,
hoping I can find a phrase
to breathe a little warmth
into the void,
a sentence strong enough
to bridge the gap
and get across
affection.
