Poems and Poetry

The Silence between Friends | A Poem by Roy Pullam

The circle narrows
Friends
Their faces light
When we come close
But there is distance now
A bond broken
A relationships severed
As the atom split
We were protons
Positive in our youth
Constantly in motion
With dreams
With ambition
And now neutrons
Complacent
Not reacting
To the thought
The behind the eye
Wish
That somehow
We could harness
The energy
Make that call
Arrange that meeting
Do that outing
But the bother
Has bearing
Too much effort
To disturb
The comfort of aloneness
