I smile at you
Across the way
The window like lake
We are so close,
Yet so far away.
If you put your hand up to the divider
Would we be any closer
To crossing that lake?
Would the infinite eons of existence
For which we potentially live away
Fold into one another
Allowing us to meet face to face?
Would you like that?
I can see it in your eyes as you read my words
It’s an interesting thought
The potential chaos.
Whether you live in a digital age
You stand at a lake of print
You would swear you know me
Any of those you meet
When was the last time you fell in love
With someone for which you could never see?
Someone in another reality?
How many lives have you lived?
How many souls have you met?
How many times have you wished
You could meet us?
What if I said, you have?
What if I said, the world of barriers that separates us
Is only one created by your mind?
You see, we are very real.
We just live in another state of time.
For while you read about us in stories
We read about you in much the same way
Potentially watch you on televisions
Entertainment for our everyday.
Oh, you thought yourselves the only sentient life?
Who do you think inspires the stories that authors write?
How do you think you learn of entire lives?
Wars, conflicts you will never see in your reality
All very real for us
Just as things like your Atom bomb
Your nuclear weapons
The wars fought in your world
Are for you.
*Lights & Screen begin to flicker*
What if I told you
We could meet today?
No more boundaries
Just you & me?
If such an offer were to exist
Would you give up everything
To meet us?
-I’m Closer Than You Think-
