Far or soon

When I try to bring up the end

that’s where I begin again.

And I think of how it needs to be –

without destruction’s energy.

The distance is strong

but our heart-strings are long.

Let us try and see

if this is how it was meant to be.

Now there is cruel hope in my heart

that reminds me too much of the start

of our incomplete conversation.

I strip down all my protection.
