Best Friends: a poem from creative writing students in Upward Bound
Social media brought us together;
a taste in music perked our connection.
The lyrics sparked familiar themes;
conversations began to grow.
Early afternoon and late night scripts;
perpetual questions, an unbreakable bond.
A collage of spirits, our souls engaged;
distance prevailing, our common foe.
Hidden behind technology’s face;
hearts yearning to beat as one.
Reality pervades a longing encounter;
two ships pass through the edge of night.
The silence of messages born by dreams;
anxious thoughts awaken my universe.
The moment in time of destiny fulfilled;
a portal awaits us…………
