Poem for a Lover Far Away. ~ Andrea Rossin {Poem}

poem for a lover far away

*** part 3

remember all that was,
every moment.

all we said and did.

(can you remember all of that?
did you record those moments
in your mind
and imprint them into your body?

did you peek
and peek again
and trace the contours of what you felt in me
into yourself?)

she said,
“answer me now.”

(it is demanding, I know.)

“now is not the time,” he responded.

“dear, speak to me from your heart.”

(it is silent for a very long time.
I breathe into the moments and feel my fingers twitch.
the roar of nothing fills my longing, addictive mind.


I think it is my heart.
I think myself through the body often.)

“how will love survive
our distance?”

“peace.  peace, sweet one.”

(every hurt

another sacrifice.)
