Together & Apart

Living together in a small space

Will not bind more tightly

Two partners in life and once

In passionate love

But drive them apart with a

Relentless force.

Absence makes the heart grow

Fonder it’s said and also a proof

Of better understanding per

IT-communication. Incredible.

But then already Ann had proven

With her bard that Internet –

Togetherness may lead to love

And close intimacy of minds

And souls

Furthering the mood for art

And poetry. Peacefully.

Living together at ease

For the poet and his fashionista

Spouse means

Living apart at times

Thus cultivate their relationship.


Now then – it would also mean

Living in a permanent state of

Commuting back and forth

Between a flat and a watch

Over an elderly friend

Who slowly loses his grip

On life.
