Why - Poem by Pascale Ost

Sometimes I’m asking myself

Why has it always to be so difficult?

Why is it so easy to hurt your beloved one
When she is so far away?

Why is it so more painful?
If you argue with your beloved one
Over the internet?

Internet words are written so much easier
Then be spoken out loud to your beloved one

Feelings are not the same
When the person you love is sitting
On the other side of the screen

You can’t touch her
You can’t kiss her
You can’t caressing her
You can’t say how much you love her
You can’t put her head on your shoulder when she needs it
You can’t wipe away the tears

In fact the only thing you can do is
Just sit down and watch her

Hoping she’ll not let you down
When you need her at most

Hoping she loves you,
The same way you love her

Hoping that the words
She writes have the same
Meaning like yours

Hoping that she will wait
Till you can come to her

That’s why I’m asking myself

WHY has it to be always so difficult
If you love someone?
