hands

We started with unsaid words on a bench somewhere far from the rest of the world. Strangers who spoke in a silent conversation, eyes distant, lost, and empty. Your first words were of the sea: still, calm, mysterious and enchanting. A few and slow seconds of silence, you stand and leave. The next day I see you at the same bench, eyes all but different. I sat, breathed, and listened to the blue in the horizon and to your words. Our routine continued—days into weeks and weeks into months. Your sight never left the sea, and I didn’t with you. We created a silent bond. A bond neither you nor I could put a finger on.

A same day came, but was different altogether. I could not recognize the twinkle in those orbs the moment you landed on mine. You said let’s hold hands, hello and thank you with a smile. We started with unsaid words on a bench somewhere far from the rest of the world, and ended with our names and hands entwined.

가까이 다가가고 싶었지만 가까이 다가갈 수 없었습니다.
내가 가까이 다가가면 다가가는 만큼
그대가 멀어질 것 같아서..
가까이 다가가면..
내가 다가가면...
그대는 영영 떠나갈 것 같아서
가까이 다가갈 수 없었습니다.
그대가 떠나간 뒤, 그 상처와 그리움
감당할 수 없을 것 같아서
가까이 다가가고 싶었지만
더이상 가까이 다가갈 수 없었습니다.
한 순간 가까웁다 영영 그대를 떠나게 하는 것보다
거리는 조금 떨어져 있지만 오래도록 그대를
바라보고 싶는 마음이 더 앞섰기에...
