this distance between us


This distance between us
Not to be measured in meters
Nor can any feet or toes
Express the scope
Of this distance
When you sit here, right
Across the table, sipping
The tea I made you
Sipping the life
I'm no longer part of

I answer you mystically
Since there's no more
Room in this room for me
To trust you with my

tea

And you smile
And I smile
Widening the gap

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
