There's an ocean between us.  by Fiona Christensen

i tried to swim across the span that separated us
but it seemed the further i swam, the greater it grew.
I swam all day
I swam all night
But eventually i gave up the fight.

I stopped the struggle
and floated upon the surface.
I closed my eyes
and thought back to what we shared…
I fell into a fitful slumber and my dreams became nightmares as the waves tossed my body to & fro.

When i awoke i had been beached upon the shore of our memories.
and so without realising
i found that when i stopped trying to get to you,
i had found my own way to you eventually.
