This silence hurts my ears.
We scratch and scrape to fill the empty we both feel.
This love reflects our best and worst in the mirror.
This distance increases my fears.

Music Video: “This Love” by Craig Armstrong
Together, but separate
Next to each other, but alone
A mini-universe within
shines just for us.

This poem is written from an image prompt for #PromptsAndCircumstance a daily writing session set up by +Bliss Morgan on Google+. If you are a fellow Plusser, stop by and say “Hi!” and maybe read some of the submissions under the hashtag.
If you’s like to see the rough draft of this, I posted it online w/a pretty overlay of the universe. You can see it here at Instagram.com/deyanira.writes
