Distance

Poetry by Briann Dunn

“Distance is just a number”
Can a number build a barrier?
Of language or territory
Can a number be any scarier?
Creating a prejudicial bully
Can a number cause dehydration or
starvation of an entire nation?
Home sickness, the aching of a heart
Just an excuse for loving couples to part
Across the street or across the ocean
If i can’t see you my words stay unspoken
Is distance really a number?
That causes pain and hunger; or is it an obstacle
It may be war but defeat is optional
