the distance between you and me...

this piece is actually a repost---something i'd scribbled a long time ago in one of my vulnerable moments.


there is a distance separating us--you and me..
not one of miles,
but one of silence...
unpredictable silence!!

there is this void which shows up,
making everything seem incomplete,
and i wonder if you have noticed it too...
uncomfortably inadequate!!

a few words thrown in here and there,
some few smiles and laughs shared from time to time,
your want of space, my fear of crashing...
empty insecurities!!

a troubled mind lost in thoughts,
engulfing the whole of me at times,
a feeling that says something is wrong somewhere...
terribly wrong!!

what matters is the distance,
but not the one between two bodies,
rather the one between two souls...
invisible strings!!

its just a matter of time today,
before we cross these miles between,
a distance just a coupla hours away...
easily traversed!!

but who will break the silence,
the eerie one creeping from time to time,
shielded in a strong armour it lies safe...
haunting awkwardness!!

until then lets just try and figure,
the reason which keeps holding us back...
is it my mistake, your fault or a little of both?
blame games!!

though both of us know--you and me,
that there is a distance to be traversed
between two hearts...
between two souls...
through the silence...
through the emptiness...
through the awkwardness...
through the insecurities...
one which no airplane will help us cross...
only love!!
---------------------------------------------------

and over time life made me realise that sometimes, the distance just keeps growing...
sometimes, the love is never enough!!

there is such a fine line... but that fine line is such a huge separation. I know how that is. Sigh.

thats beautiful poetry. since you are neck deep into poems - suggest visit my blogpost http://tnagpal.blogspot.com/2010/09/there-is-poet-in-you-random-thoughts-5.html and read the small 10 line poem in the end; its so similar in the message ... (of course I'm not the poet), I'm sure you will also love it.

@ raaji
i agree..however i have always believed that the line is as thin or thick as you (the two in question) want it to be :)
