The Gap in Between

by Ashley Tong 4 years ago in surreal poetry
Report Story

A Poem

It is a voice in her head, all day

posing the questions that replay

Not why, but what makes it stay

if only one knew what to say

What is the longest distance of them all,

the being that recommences to appall

While it appears a perpetual recall

Her teardrops gently begun to fall

My arm has reached as far as it goes

And my fading footprint scarcely tiptoes,

surrounded by dubious foes

How could I have taken my dose

Wouldn’t you have it declared

that the illustrious closeness shared

was precisely what compared

Now that, is quite regretfully fared

About the author

Ashley Tong

If I were a painter, linguistics would be my palette, and poetry my favourite brush. If I were an artist, nature would be my muse, and music my companion, and I shall endeavour to depict life as I see it.
