Valleys are a result of a natural process

Stretched out over geologic time

After thousands of years they grow


We sat close together

I felt the distance at length

inside jokes that are shared are hilarious

I look from the outside, I stare at

my plate wondering if my hesitance

is obvious my heart is a little heavy seeing reality

so I moved on to another friend


after geologic years

my hands outstretched I know no bounds

the rift is too wide for me to jump over

should this even be a valid complaint?

to mull over lost connections

over natural made valleys

after all there isn’t reason to stir sand without wind

the atmosphere is light and airy

but I feel taken lightly


there are these valleys

and how I wished I could cross over
