Poetry

Fraction

Written by Jacob Ibrag

I took notice of your stare, a fraction of a

second  but I caught it. An inquiring look to see

how I was doing, to see if I was happy. Fraction of a

second, you smiled in the wind, whispering something

I couldn’t hear. Connected to dissect each others grins.

Surviving the void we adopted when we diverged  and

fled. Fraction of a second, reliving our laughs and our

fights. We collided, we said goodbye. Fraction of a

second, enough for now. Enough until it’s not.

    I simply loved the play of words. The moment of togetherness before separation. The whole gamut of emotions yet so simply expressed. Mighty words.

  10. Whenever I see something like ‘photographer unknown’ I feel like it’s my serious job to hunt down the photographer using Image Search on Google xDDD ANyway, I believe the credit is to Lauren Jarvis-Gibson -http://thoughtcatalog.com/lauren-jarvis-gibson/2016/06/to-my-fellow-women-prince-charming-isnt-going-to-save-you/processed-with-vsco-with-a9-preset-4/

    The poem reminded me of childhood friends, how we’ve become so distant
