• Look Deeper... Look Deeper



    Here

    The space between skin and skin

    is torment.

    But here

    The space between souls

    makes the space between skin and skin

    a comfort.

    The truth is hidden

    and yet its whisper reaches us

    in the sweet luxury of a smile.

    In the brief consumption of embrace.

    It tells you to look deeper…

    To look deeper.

    Look beyond the space between us all and

     see

    that you are that smile.

    You are that embrace.

    You are the civilian

    whose life was lost to hatred.

    You are the man

    who strapped a bomb

    to your own body,

    and in the name of hatred,

    took those lives.

    You are the earth

    that held them both

    and converted their bodies

    into new life.

    Your pain is a congress of tears

    called the ocean.

    Your joy is a collation of light

    called the sun.

    The whisper of truth

    tells you to look deeper…

    To look deeper.

    Until the truth is revealed

    that there is no space

    between skin and skin.

    That there is no space

    between souls.
