it is

it’s not the distance between
that marks the burn
in the mind

one could live beyond
the obscurity of the
other side of the world

it’s not the time between
that carves the ache
in the heart

one could wait past
the confinement of
a thousand years

it is the silence between
that bears the weight
in the soul

one could die through
the echoes of
unspoken words
