PAD Challenge - Day 23 - Different Seas

Today's WD 2014 April PAD Challenge prompt was location... And we all know just how important location is...

Here's my location poem.

Different Seas

We tried to convince ourselves
Staring at different seas didn’t matter
The love in our hearts would overcome
The mountains and valleys between us
We spoke words of togetherness
Yet turned away when faced with inconvenience
Promises of reaching out tomorrow
Turned into silence
As you stood in your place and I in mine
Staring at different seas
Dreaming of letting the current connect us
While we refused to make a move
Each tied to a boulder we pulled in opposite directions
Until we both dropped the rope and whispered
“Someday, we’ll find ourselves in the same place at the same time
Until then you’ll remain in my heart…”
