Love's Over - Still There? - Poem by Helena Thomas

My love spans the ocean,
no, not its physical expanse,
Moreover,
My heart lies over the ocean.

We were young,
We were foolish,
We thought we had the world.

FACT

a smile,

We were told we were made for each other,
no, we were told we were similar
We laughed at the obscurity of our natures,
we did not understand
The awesome power forming fetters between us.

Never could, never would - dare until now,
Cards spread out on the table, a mask- yet literally,

A moment?
knowledge-
England and Australia.
As far away as one can go,
Even the moon seemed nearer
and visits most nights- or tries to,

A sway,
an attempt?
A possibility?
Bursting the ideal bubble?

Denial,
a desire,
a destiny defied!
That was that.

A long time since those aces were spread out,
A king and queen in their own different castles,
Inebriated confession,
A share of love,
an unprecedented act.
Reaction

Nothing.

Distance leaves us destitute.
Destruction.

Reconstruction, yet how?
A fresh start
Situation shrugged off like a shawl,

needing to talk, converse, see,
Intimacy-
a touch, a breath

Protection

Disappearing like the evaporation of dew in the light of day.
