Distance

empty

A widening dull gap between flat action and an exposed soul

Empty space that gathers between silence and vulnerability

Trepidation swallowing emotion without care to savor any taste

The flicker of a flame fighting for air

Fingertips barely touching

The heart that will soon be out of reach

The impotence of connection

-distance

  1. “Empty space that gathers between silence and vulnerability,” is a pertinent observation. Far too many wounded choose not to speak. If they can vote with their feet, they will, but too many feel trapped and just remain vulnerable. This is a reason so many DV victims stay in abusive relationships.
