Hairline Crack – NaPoWriMo 2015: Day 8


The hairline crack
between white and black,
light and the dark;
all that she had, with
everything he lacked
is the measure of
the degree of separation
between
what has happened,
and what could have,
What will happen
and what should have
It is the standard deviation
Of beliefs gone blind,
Of promises trying
To hold on to
a wisp of smoke
that is slowly dying
as time fills in,
what’s left within
the space that
fills up their hearts
with little tiny parts of
the stars
that made up their dreams
