The Space Between Us

I see the space between us holding the tension of opposites – like magnets that repel and attract. The space between unsaid words, pauses and stops. The space between us as we lean in for the first kiss. The space between drops of rain, between idleness and action, prejudice and abuse.

I see the space between us that binds us together and pulls us apart. Between life and death, hope and despair. In the space between us, as we hold tight to our separate worlds, I see the dance of the whole.
