Divided

By
More by this author
Only a slight invisibility separates our existence
Touch forbidden
Space encouraged
A force between our bodies stops our contact

A longing gaze
You return
With a spread hand on the window
I touch my fingers back
One by one
The glass may as well be concrete
Our fingers align
Our heartbeats follow suit
Attraction radiates through the glass like a magnet
With a force so strong
I gasp for breath

I stand
I spread my body against the glass
Helplessly longing for our romance
Why can’t I break through?
My cheek slides on the window as I turn my head
Hiding the painful tears
Of our division
I sit
My back is on the wall
My knees are to my chest
My head is in my hands

A tap on the glass
Turns my face
As your fingers draw
A line
A heart
A curve
I <3 U

Our eyes reacquaint
A strong gaze
Focused
Stronger than the glass between us
A silent kiss of hope and reassurance

A curtain falls
I fall
Our meeting has ended
The memory will withstand
The test of division
Divided
Until our next reunion
