New Poetry

Drifted Apart

We have drifted apart for no reason,
But then we came together the same way,
Meeting in a milder moment of the maelstrom,
Embracing as the passionate storm moved away.

You were perfect, so was I.
The distance and the closeness
Of the Internet kept us so.
In Blogs we trust; some lie, but not most.

It doesn’t matter; we are thrust
Out and away from each other;
Things come between us and confuse us,
Though it’s all our own fault.

It’s our reward, I guess, for meeting
In an advanced half-aware state, where
You and I keep summing up our hearts and
Claiming that we are coming apart.
