I come closer
Yet there’s a distance between us –
A distance that grows day by day…
I cross a border
Trying to reach you somewhere somehow.
There’s something I will achieve by trying to…
I’ll leave you completely
Because the road ahead leads me backwards
And will have me looking at your closed gates…
Somehow trying to get somewhere,
Trying to be something somewhen
Was all it took us to get away…
Away from each other.
Even if we have never wanted to:
I’m not there. You’re not here.

„A Refugee’s Note“ was also inspired by the exact same prompt…
