The Space Between Us

“I think of people in a crowd walking along in their separate worlds, and I see them as part of a whole.”

The space between us holds the tension of opposites

Like magnets as they repel and attract.

The vibration of hope in the space between lovers leaning in for their first kiss.

The space between droplets of rain and the sense of enclosure.

The space between idleness and action, between prejudice and abuse.

That which binds us together and pulls us apart.

The space between life and death, beauty and despair.
