Illo Friday: Aging

Aging without accompaniment

Time was not a barrier
let alone space.
their perception kept them entangled
only distance held them apart.

and their minds fuse to endless words
their certainty bond like octaves in a verse

now their indeterminant state
leave many elements deliberately vague..

and they remained an epic stained
by the tragedy of being but asymptote curves -
  continually approaching near
   without ever really meeting.

dropping notes in continual lines
in a half step, half tone
in durations of silences
as one whispers in an echo...
id rather grow old alone
than be with someone not you

note: thanks to Illustration Friday.. this week's topic is so timely. i just made this poem this morning before opening my PC.

Lingering lines,

"their perception kept them entangled
only distance held them apart"

anonymous, rowantree, .:A:... thanks!

isay.. i agree, i myself listen to songs way back from Skip James to Billie Holiday until the present.

floots.. asymptote.. i first heard this word in math class. and i guess, while life would be empty without music, as musical notes need counting, numbers are a part of life as well.

paddy.. read your e-friends post, someone commented.. "Ah, but there's the rub. How to know which friendships will be lasting until we dive in?" made me nod.

btw thanks for the blogroll!

lws.. salamat kapatid...

Another wonderful, expressive poem! I liked the illo, too. I loved the sort of vintage feel to it, even as it shows a progression into the future. Very cool.
