Twin Fins

 

I find myself missing you

The complementary nature of our energies

is like no other before

I find myself missing you

Since our friendships inception

Every moment has been shared

Now too far away to call

for no apparent reason

Late at night

Early in the morning

When the sun is it’s highest in the sky.

I find myself missing you

Under a similar sky

Feet planted on different patches of earth

Separated by the ocean

VAST

I will find myself missing you

Until we swim together again

In the same see

Twin fins

You see

Are

You

and

I

 

The ocean. Vast.

Grandfather

His grandfather died

An ox, he was, they said

His mother

Alone in China (a country of millions)

Hurtled abuse

Through the screen

In the form of criticisms

About his face

And its lack of expression

The loss of someone you love

Hurts

Especially when you’ve been divided

By continents and years

Guilt

A wasted emotion

Becomes a force

That’ll knock you

Flat

Any chance it gets

Don’t let your guard down

Or you’re done for.
