Space Between Us - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

An eternity passed by me,
Unwilling, I watched it go
In the fog of reticence
Hovering elusively
Over the space between us,
Compounding the misery
Of your absence
And my absence...

You could not hear me
Calling you aloud
With my eagle's eyes
But then I realized
That you following me
With yours...
All the blurry distance
Of the divided highway
Muffling the sound
Of my soft voice...

I wanted us to travel together
And I thought you asked me
To be your man
But you did not speak
And I did not speak either!
Nothing was mentioned,
So, nothing was clear,
I turned away again
And to the familiar place
Where I deeply cried!
This painful agony
Became the irony of life!

    Definitavente passionate. Do not let go! Life is too short. Don't Think about time, no space exist.This sense of stability makes us inert. Feeling secure its illusion. Already love! AH! Love! ! (Report) Reply
