Borders of the Unknown by Alexandru1988

Toying with the boundary separating us from them

Strumming the simple rope tether like the string of a harp

What sound does it play?

A melancholy note, sorrowful in tune

Hinting at unhappiness, stuck here with only each other

I see your kindness, your hand reaching out

And while you bring me such joy

I can’t help but long for things, others aside from ourselves

But they can’t come to us

Nor can we go to them

We still are not alone here, together separated

But these self-imposed boundaries allow no escape
