Separation

We explore the possibilities
of life within the unity
we seek
for soul will speak
of all we do not know
and lead us to a path
where love may flow

Yet following can be a lonely task
when these cells of flesh just ask
to touch the love they sometimes feel
in another form that's real
to life in time

But even touching can bring pain
as it feeds the endless flame
of life's desire
while the fire burns
regardless how the heart will yearn
or the miles that keep us far apart

And I'm left to wonder this -
can pain be turned to love
within these moments of
our separation?
