the smile

caught us both

you liked mine

i liked yours

intensity built

as the conversations flowed

inundating the email system

in a back and forth flurry

then on to Messenger

day and night

into the wee hours

parlaying…smiling…laughing

detours…disconnects…

realignment…words running furiously onward

time knew no bounds

then

texting followed my heart

through several states

then

we skyped

and met face to face

then

we planned how we would meet

then

plans became interrupted

and

now…

NOTHING…

even in their absence

words ARE  sharper than swords

    Jane,
    Get your poems into a collection and have them published. You could make money with all your powerful thoughts written so powerfully into words!
