Hey again :) so the response to my first poem was way bigger than I expected it to be so here is another one I've been working on. I'm not sure if I'm happy with it as a finished piece yet so if you let me know your thoughts, that would be great!


Their faces merged, familiar but
Different. Oh, so different. And as
The smoke clouded around him, my
Thoughts followed suit, struggling
To search through the fog, his face
The only beacon. A name,
Hovering just out of reach, the
Distance between us never quite
Closing. I look blindly, not
Knowing: should the dust settle,
Or stir up a storm, forever obscuring our
view? Searching for
A connection, some link to show
My intrigue was not alone.
