I hear you but cannot reach you.
This hourglass wall between us
Taunts me. It haunts me. Hurts us.
Wave after wave we hurl against it
With ever increasing passions that
Bounce back at us again and again.
You want me but cannot hold me.
The space between our worlds is
Wider than reality and just as cold.
But in passing moments when we share
What poets seek and lovers dare,
We claim each for each forever more.
