Lightyears Away

by Ingrid Prohaska

"Falling Stars" Mihaly Zichy
Sometimes I wonder
why a person like me
can be so sad.

And then I wonder
why people hurt each other
and why they hurt me.

once very close
and still they are
deeply connected
in a certain way.

Near me
but unfortunately
lightyears away.

"Jacob's Ladder" William Blake

I see myself
moving on a helix
from the bottom to the top

Unfinished matters
I meet
again and again
just seen with more distance

I guess that's the plot.
