Stars Cross

do we subsist together 

I feel so far away

born between sowed leaves

my own land and sea

different enough to feel lost

similar enough to connect

individuals so complex

experience, goals, struggles

crystal clear and opaque bubbles

it seems impossible 

how we manage

simultaneously in tandem

when in orbit, will we meet

you see me and I, you

I touch you and you, me

would we understand each other

I’ve never seen your thoughts

maybe because we are so different

it’s easy to get across 

you’re you and I, me

points of view we cannot see

naively blind but filled with sight

a warmth to guide us day and night

your colors don’t make sense

your rhythm I can’t repeat 

press myself to listen close 

and recognize this cacophony
