Poets & Poetry

Distance

Distant by sea, but united by sky,
We are the same, for we laugh and cry.
No one in this world ever thought it to be,
But we are all the same, I see.
We all lie and conceal,
To hide when we hurt and bleed.
We all laugh and say “I am fine”,
We show ourselves to be on cloud nine.
But examining our hearts under the microscope of emotion,
“We are fine” was unreal, is the conclusion.
We all smile to fill that hole,
The hollow signifying a broken heart and wounded soul.
