bookends

POETRY-bookendswe make the same shelf
i on one end
and you on the other
there are stories wedged in between us
their pages bursting with
words of love, loss, and longing
and pressed between those
beautiful words
are s p a c e s
that are all so silent and
yet so loud —
all of them make you seem so far away.

— Hillary Mae Bucao
