Why can it be

so hard
so easy

Running towards the same goal
yet hand never touching

Life is just so

enlightening
damning

In a wold frought with
anger and deception
love and lust
fact and myth
spilling forth like a dam burst

Coursing the ground

faster
faster

Why can it be

so joyful
so heartbreaking

All in a blink of an eye
while you sit beside me

Comfortable silences

impossibly long
ever so short

The years have stretched between us
and yet it's not been that long

Could we
possibly
just stop

Drop all pretense, cease demanding
so that maybe
just maybe

We can touch again?
