Distances

Unfinished and an ill-executed idea.... all the same....

Distant conversations on telephone calls
Emotions bridged by Yahoo Emoticons
How can few minutes of connectivity
Help bridge the absence of propinquity

When I want to mask the pain writ large on my face
The distant conversation is often a matter of solace
When deep hidden pain I however must show
The distance hides my face, not my silence though …

love and squalor said...

are these poems products of personal experiences?
the pain, thankfully, barely gets across all the ether but sometimes I wonder if all the love gets filtered out too.
nothing beats being able to touch/smell/see while talking to a person.

and yeah, I don mind any version of my blogger identity you choose to use.

love et al: Hi.. well some of them are .. not actual experiences though, most are triggered by the experiences and combined with servings of poetic license....

I sincerely hope that the love doesnt get filtered out.. isnt that what keeps it going??

Cheers

As I said Saee,
You shall have those
Days too
For that you must enjoy
The present ones too
