Close, Closer, Closest

esslingen

Esslingen, Germany, 2017.

 

Here lies my heart
and here, yours, too;
here lies my being
and yet, yours, not –

an ocean between us:
an ocean of longing,
whose tides rise
and fall, and rise and

you said, your soul
is ever waiting;
I said, the home to
which I return is you –

and so we share
our days this way:
close, closer, till
the day – closest.

– Agnes Chew
