Betwixt Us - Poem by ATUL CHANDRA SARKAR

It's true we see each other
Face to face, but you see,
There's a glass-sheet between us
That keeps us still two.
A distance between us
That bridges can't span;
A silent between us
That words can't break;
A past between us
That Time can't return;
A relation between us
That circumstances can't restore;
There's a third between us
Who makes things now different;
Gives me a heart-burning,
Makes you cold and indifferent.

    Great and powerfully evocative lines! The last line especially. I have only a small criticism I believe it should be a silence between us not a silent between us.10+ as always. (Report) Reply
