22 kms

Only 22 kms of a straight road separates us
Longer than the thousand miles of yore
Our proximity lulls us
We are dulled by a sense of being close.

Once, the longer distance worked
It kept us close because we denied it
Attacked it with vigour, and overcame
To be together.

Now, the distance tricks us, taunts us
And we mockingly deny it even today
Yet, what we didn’t lose to 2200 kms
We surrendered to a mere 22 kms.
