We Are So Far Away

” We are so far away

From the way

In which I find

A perfect path

To travel by.

Greenery be

Thy lovely scene

To decorate my memory shy.

Shy from worlds

Run wrought with Linguist’s dye.

Yes, shy from space

Filled with weathered atoms.

My dear friend,

I have found, too,

That a painting previously painted

Is one not meant for you.

A canvas clear and tangible

Is all around.

Take up your lungs and

Exhale colours

Vividly breathing anew.

For you

And I

We’re two

Of a kind.


As you wish.


Already done.

This one time is a place all our own.

It’s a place bred and alone.

Matchmaking the creations

Kept secret between hearts.

‘Tis a shame

That which hides such a fame

Be an elation

Such as art.”
