Strangers they've become

by Alexandra Román de Hernández
(Toa Baja, Puerto Rico)

Words are written occupying the moment and being of those that should be spoken.
Gap grows millimeter at a time on a space once packed by a piece that shed from a heart which was united to another.
Frustration empowers the tension fed by sharp looks and the nothingness which fills a clouded atmosphere.
The path comes to a crossroads.
And so their extremities no longer hold themselves. Millimeters to centimeters to inches… Ah, so long to a once shared existence thought eternal!
A precious sentiment mutated by cruel force and venomous emotion.
No longer theirs, neither are the memories of old that united two souls in a past with no present.
