POEMS WITH RUKENNY

 
WORLDS APART
 
That
I want you
Is
an open secret
I
can’t hide.
But
it seems I can’t have you
 
The
bounds between us.
Is
too wide we can’t cross.
So
high we can’t climb.
Too
strong we can’t break it.
 
As
much as we can, we’ve tried
But
our hands seem tied.
Maybe,
there are doors
We
simply can’t walk through.
 
I
know you want me
As
much as I want you,
Our
hearts know this truth.
But
why does everything still keep us apart?
 
These
bounds holding us back are tight.
Maybe
it’s not worth the fight.
Maybe
I’m not the one
You
were meant to find.
