Random Poem:

Greetings From A Star-Crossed Lover

just in case we never find each other
if the days between us are forever apart
if the moon has led you to another star
if you travel always the road away from where i go
just in case we awake
every morning to different angles of the sun
and every night
in the same darkness
take bed upon different mattresses
if my eyes always looking
never see you
my fingers always reaching
never touch you
and my lips always ready
never kiss you
even if we are never to meet
paths always removed or out of sync
i want it to be known that i have dreamed you
imagined you
and waited for you
and i wanted to say something
that sounds a lot like
and a little like
