In Between. A poem.

HIS FIRST BOOK OF POETRY MUST BE SOMETHING!!!! THIS IS GOOD AND DESCRIPTIVE!

Laidback DM: SteveStillStanding.com

Would that I could
rent
this universe asunder
to bring you that much
closer to me.
So near our timid
outstretched
fingertips could
touch,
so near we could taste
each other’s stuttering
exhaled breath
and our carbon dioxide
could mingle
like salient
bacteria.

Every rapid-fire conversation
and reluctant discussion
disguised as
commentary
or immersive peer review,
hiding behind saturnine
walls
of bifurcated emotion.
How similar we are
(and yet how antithetic).

Still, the space between
remains
undiminished,
no matter how much I long for it.
Is that a glimpse of
the real you,
I see?
Is that visceral desire you
harbour for
me?

Dream on, my friend,
in the infinite space left
in between.

My first book of poetry, The All or the Nothing, is available now as an e-book from most online distributors. To find out more, click here.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
