Parallel Lives


Looking back

On how our time together 

Played out

I wish I could have seen ahead

An empty room here

Is as barren 

As an empty room there

Abject loneliness shouldn’t be fed

I had no idea how much

You wouldn’t be missing me

Or how badly I’d be missing you 

Each day we’re apart

Takes a toll on my heart 

Each empty sunrise

Emphasizes the distance

A darkness 

So stark and so true

Were we broken before?

Are we broken now?

At this point I really can’t tell 

You’re stuck there

On the other side of dawn

Beyond the twenty-fifth parallel
