From the Poet Board: Separation

Separation, by Raederle

A pane of bubbled glass
Through which the sun scatters
Imperfect visions of you
Imperfect visions of me

An illusion of closeness
When our colours mingle
– Oh, breathless hope –
A rainbow forms…

Evaporates
In a blink
of disbelief.

Shadows
Obscure

Reveal

Pain so palpable
That fingers yet
Reach
Yearn
To touch
To comfort

Tears, like rain
Drip down the glass
Freeze against a cheek
Chill the fingertips

Don’t… breathe…
