Two entities of the same space,
On a journey to reach one another,
Always kept afar by time and place.

Providing the darkness, yet maintaining their grace;
Separated, but working together.
Two entities of the same space.

Revolving around a similar base,
Bound for eternity for worse or for better,
Always kept afar by time and place.

Going in circles for what seems to be ages,
The two finally come together.
Two entities of the same space.

And just like that the two embrace,
Two souls eclipsed forever,
Always kept afar by time and place.

United they run a short-lived race,
Only to once again stray from each other.
Two entities of the same space,
Always kept afar by time and place.


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem because I was intrigued by the distance that seems to always be present within human relationships. I realized that this occurrence doesn't only occur in mankind, but in nature. The phenomenon of an eclipse is essentially the same thing. This thought interested me and I thought by using objects of such prominence (the sun and the moon), I could display the importance of the poem.
